Anacostia (Washington, D.C.)
Built as temporary housing for World War II workers, the Frederick Douglass Dwellings were located near land previously owned by Tobias Henson, a former slave. Deemed uninhabitable in 1998, the Frederick Douglass Dwellings were demolished in 2000 to make way for a new mixed-income community.
