Hartford, Harriett Beecher Stowe House Tours

December 22, 2023

beecher stowe

Expect a conversational, interactive tour where you can participate along with your guide. Hear about Stowe’s life and the impact of the anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Connect the past to the present as you discuss social issues of the 19th century and today.

Conversations set our tours apart. You aren’t talked AT but rather, invited to speak WITH.  Open, thoughtful discussions that respect difference allow us all to better understand each other and many important topics. You will engage with ideas about Harriet’s courage to speak up about the inequities of the 19th century—many of which persist today.

See the beautifully preserved Victorian Gothic cottage, now a National Historic Landmark, where Harriet Beecher Stowe lived for 23 years.

Explore the Nook Farm neighborhood, an 1800s community of intellectuals, political leaders, authors, and scholars who influenced the country’s intellectual and social development.

Leave feeling inspired that you too can create positive change.

Laptops are welcome, but make sure you charge up before you come as we have no power outlets to offer. Pencils only, please; no pens permitted!

Guests may spend up to two hours sharing the same creative space that Stowe herself used.

Over a span of 40 weeks, publishing Uncle Tom’s Cabin in weekly newspaper installments, Harriet’s words changed the world.
