Douglass Community CenterFrederick Augustus Washington Bailey fled enslavement in Maryland on September 3, 1838. His escape route included travel by train, ferry, and steamboat through Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New York. Each tree in Escape Allée represents one of these four states on Bailey's trek to freedom, after which he adopted the name Frederick Douglass, renowned in his day and revered by posterity.
