The Harriet Beecher Stowe House
2950 Gilbert Avenue
Cincinnati, OH 45206
The Harriet Beecher Stowe House was built by Lane Seminary in 1833 to serve as the residence of that institution's president. Harriet Beecher Stowe moved to Cincinnati from Connecticut in 1832 with her father, Dr. Lyman Beecher, who had been appointed president of the seminary. During her stay in Cincinnati, she learned of the evils of slavery and later expressed it through her book Uncle Tom's Cabin. The Cincinnati Citizens Committee on Youth has restored the Stowe House. The Ohio Historical Society and the city of Cincinnati funded recent renovations.
