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 and the Lane Seminary. The abolitionist, civil and human 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, are a special focus of the House.
The Stowe House offers cultural events, programming, and tours. The house and grounds are also available to groups for rental for meetings and special events.
The adjoining grounds are maintained by the Cincinnati Park Board.
Harriet Beecher Stowe House is an Ohio History Connection site.
"The object of these sketches is to awaken sympathy and feeling for the African race, as they exist among us; to show their wrongs and sorrows, under a system so necessarily cruel and unjust as to defeat and do away the good effects of all that can be attempted for them, by their best friends, under it.
--Harriet Beecher Stowe Author's preface from Uncle Tom's Cabin
