  • This site is too frequently overlooked and unvisited in my opinion. In fact, I did not know of it until I bought my ticket to visit the Mark Twain house, next door. However, I feel fortunate that I learned about it and visited. Whether or not you like the story Uncle Tom's Cabin or what your opinions are, this place will make you initiate deeper discussions and think about American history, slavery, modern parallels and more. It will have you ponder her personal life, what influenced her and how, and what provoked her to write in the first place. Anita was a curious, inquisitive and open-minded tour guide that made my visit very personal. She truly made the tour fun and educational. My wish is that more people come to Hartford, CT to visit the Stowe Center.
  • Our tour of the Harriet Beecher Stowe house was really informative and interesting! The tour guide was lovely as well. Definitely recommend
