The house at 63 Federal Street where Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the anti-slavery novel that some say helped spark the American Civil War, has fulfilled many roles in the Brunswick community since it was built in 1806. See the Stowe website for more information on the house and Harriet’s Writing Room.

Tess Chakkalakal, associate professor of English and Africana Studies, shares her insight into the history of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, which the College has recently renovated with the help of historic preservationist Nancy Barba. Watch the segment that aired on the WCSH newsmagazine 207.
