TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– A monument for Frederick Douglass is coming to downtown Terre Haute. A five-foot tall dedication will be placed outside the Hilton Garden Inn, near the intersection of Wabash Avenue and 7th Street, according to Dr. Crystal Reynolds, who helped lead the efforts to have him honored in the city.  Douglass has a deep connection to Terre Haute– he visited the city at least 10 times, campaigned for political candidates, and desegregated the Terre Haute House in 1872. Reynolds said it's long overdue due celebrate that history.
