America's Holy Ground & Sacred Sites: 112 Faithful Reflections for America
Frederick Douglass called his home Cedar Hill; today Frederick Douglass National Historic Site bears the name of the brilliant Abolitionist orator, writer, and activist. Perched on a hilltop in the District of Columbia’s Anacostia neighborhood, Cedar Hill was Douglass’ home from 1878-1895. Imagine the inspiring, nation-changing work to emerge from Douglass’ study!

The Nez Perce tribe lived in the Rockies of Idaho and on the Montana plains. They served as generous hosts for the Lewis and Clark expedition as their return home was delayed by melting winter snow. Seven decades later, their ill-fated trek of almost 1,200 miles to escape exile to a distant reservation have made them one of the most fascinating Native American tribes. Portions of their ancestral home are protected as part of Nez Perce National Historical Park. (NPS photo of the Camas prairie.)
