Visit the newly reopened Freedom House Museum at 1315 Duke Street. This site is what remains of a large complex dedicated to trafficking thousands of Black men, women, and children from 1828 – 1861. This Museum honors the lives and experiences of the enslaved and free Black people who lived in and were trafficked through Alexandria and now includes three floors of powerful exhibits that showcase Alexandria’s Black history and the Black experience in America. Slavery, race-based laws, and racial terror erased and diminished African American history and contributions from the national narrative; however, this Museum seeks to reframe white supremacist history. The Museum is open Thursdays and Fridays 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sundays and Mondays 1 – 5 p.m.
