We preserve and interpret Stowe’s Hartford home and the Center’s historic collections, promote vibrant discussion of her life and work, and inspire commitment to social justice and positive change.
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. See the beautifully preserved Victorian Gothic cottage, now a National Historic Landmark, where Harriet Beecher Stowe lived for 23 years.
Leave feeling inspired that you too can create positive change.
