New Series: Phari’s Photos

Photos and words by @Pharipedia. Phari is one of my favorite photographers who contributes to our Instagram. He’s volunteered to share a bit more with us from his adventures around town. Phari lives on Capitol Hill.

Phari writes:

“This beautiful Italianate-style house in the Capitol Hill neighborhood was once the home of Fredrick Douglas. The abolitionist, suffragist, orator, author, and statesman purchased this house when he first moved to Washington, DC in 1871. Douglas lived at 316 A. Street, NE until 1877, before moving across the river to the Anacostia neighborhood and the “Cedar Hill” house which is now a National Historic Site.

The Fredrick Douglas family owned the Capitol Hill house until the 1930s before it was purchased by the Smithsonian; however, since the 1980s, the house has been privately owned. Just steps away from the Capitol building and the Supreme Court, a plaque commemorates this beautiful and historic home of the former slave who became a civil rights leader.”
