Harriet Beecher Stowe Center Executive Director Katherine Kane announced on Tuesday, March 12th, that Stowe's Hartford, Connecticut, home is now designated as a National Historic Landmark.
Kane noted, "This honor from the Department of the Interior and the National Park Service recognizes and celebrates Stowe's impact on America. Her most famous work, the best-selling anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom's Cabin, galvanized the abolition movement before the Civil War, and was fueled by her passion for justice and empathy for those enslaved. We appreciate the support of Connecticut's federal delegation, Governor Malloy and the CT State Historic Preservation Office. We are grateful for the testimony of the offices of Congressman Larson,
