The Harriet Beecher Stowe House is operated as an historical and cultural site, focusing on Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. The site also includes a look into the family, friends, and colleagues of the Beecher-Stowe family, Lane Seminary, and the abolitionist, womens rights and Underground Railroad movements in which these historical figures participated in the 1830's to 1860's, as well as African-American history related to these movements. For nearly 20 years, this was the home of the legendary abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe. Stowe and her family were active as religious leaders, educators, writers, and anti-slavery and women’s rights advocates. See attraction website for hours of operation.
