Frederick Douglass Statue

About Frederick Douglass Statue

The autobiography of a great American begins: “I was born in Tuckahoe, near Hillsborough, and about twelve miles from Easton, in Talbot County, Maryland.” We celebrate Frederick Douglass here in his and honor him with a statue at the Talbot County Courthouse and in programs throughout the year, including Frederick Douglass Day in September and the annual Juneteenth celebration of abolition. A self-guided driving tour, available at the Historical Society or the Visitors Center, lets you trace the journey of the American hero.
