Tourists, Students, educators and families walk in the footsteps of young Frederick Douglass along the historic waterfront of Fell's Point. Home to enslaved Africans and free blacks, a haven for runaway slaves, and the place where Frederick Douglas came of age; Fell's Point was Baltimore's original seaport and one of the nation's earliest shipbuilding center. In 2003, the City of Baltimore erected four historic markers along the tour route. In 2005, the National Park Service added the tour to its Network to Freedom Program. The tour is led by Lou Fields, President of BBH TOURS.
