Fodor's Review

Abolitionist and author Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–96) spent her final years at this 1871 Victorian Gothic cottage, now a popular stop on the Connecticut Freedom Trail. The center was built around the cottage in tribute to the author of the antislavery novel Uncle Tom's Cabin. Stowe's personal writing table and effects are housed inside.
