Conversation part of the interactive tour at Harriet Beecher Stowe Center
Visitors are key to the experience at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, where guided tours of the author’s Victorian Gothic cottage also involve conversations about not only the issues of Stowe’s time – slavery and the role of women, for example – but also the issues, like social justice, we face today. Through storytelling, photographs, writings and rotating educational exhibits, visitors will hear about Stowe’s childhood, travels, family and what compelled her to the life of an activist and abolitionist – and author of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” as well as other books. The home’s interiors have been beautifully restored in the Victorian style, and the gardens are notable for their variety and beauty. The center is a National Historic Landmark and a stop on the Connecticut Freedom Trail.
