- Field Trippin' on a weekday: Harriet Beecher Stowe House Tour
Recently, I just joined the merry volunteer docent staff at the Harriet Beecher Stowe House! This small museum is a hidden city gem getting ready to explode as the visitor traffic and programs offered increase. The home pays homage to the Beecher family, historic Lane Seminary and the famous Lane Debates led by the Lane Rebels that spurred Cincinnati into the forefront of national news for their pro-abolition stance, the Underground Railroad, and how her life in Cincinnati help shaped the views of Harriet Beecher Stowe and led her to write Uncle Tom's Cabin. Meet the 'Little Lady Who Started the Civil War" as legend has it! Also, learn how the house continued to support the African-American community well into the 20th Century as a safe place for People of Color in a segregated world. Finally, learn what the House is doing today to honor the legacy of Harriet Beecher Stowe by continuing to educate and bring the Cincinnati community together to raise awareness and continue the fight for equality for all!! The tour will begin at noon and last approximately and hour. If folks want, we can grab lunch after nearby in Walnut Hills. They have some great options. Cost of Admission: Admission Adults: $6 Seniors/Students: $5 Children ages 6-17: $3 Children age 5 and under: Free Members: Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House members and Ohio History Connection members are free.
