Information on Frederick Douglass National Historic Site :

The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site was established in 1962. The site is a preservation of the home and estate of Frederick Douglass, a prominent Afican American from the 1800's. Douglass was appointed marshal for the District of Columbia in 1876 by Rutherford B. Hayes. This was the first time a black man had successuflly received a federal appointment requiring Senate approval. Though the position ended up being in title only, it did bring Douglass financial stability and eventually he purchased his 20 room Victorian home that would eventually become part of the "Frederick Douglas National Historic Site".

A park or site is being honored in each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the five US Territories: Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, US Virgin Islands, and Northern Mariana Islands. Each National Park or National Site was selected for its natural or historical significance. The National Park Silver Quarters are being minted and issued at the rate of 5 designs a year, in approximately ten week intervals. The National Park Silver Quarters are being released in the order that the locations were first designated as National Sites. The Obverse side of the coins feature a smaller restoration of the original Washington Silver Quarter portrait, modeled from designer John Flanagan's 1932 plaster. The Reverse of each coin will feature a representation of the unique character and environment of each State, District, or Territory's National Park or Historic Site.
