Harriett Beecher Stowe Center

Harriett Beecher Stowe Center

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.
