cimg6247HCC 2016 Opening Reception

Monday, September 19 at the Harriet Beecher Stowe House

The Harvard Club kicks off the 2016-17 program year with a mix of food, drink and history at the Harriet Beecher Stowe House on September 19.  In addition to our usual socializing and announcement of the events calendar, the wonderful staff will offer tours of the house.  The Stowe Board has been invited, and we are thrilled to welcome a special guest from the Ohio History Connection (formerly the Ohio Historical Society)!  George Kane, Director of Historic Sites & Facilities, is excited to be part of the gathering of a Club whose founding members were contemporaries of the Stowe family.  Don't miss this opportunity to enjoy the best of the Harvard experience, meeting engaging people in an historic setting with a glass of wine in hand!


The House

The Harriet Beecher Stowe House is operated as an historical and cultural site focusing on Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. The site also includes a look into the family, friends, and colleagues of the Beecher-Stowe family and the Lane Seminary. The abolitionist, civil and human rights, and Underground Railroad movements in which these historical figures participated in the 1830's to 1860's, as well as African-American history related to these movements,  are a special focus of the House.

The Stowe House offers cultural events, programming, and tours. The house and grounds are also available to groups for rental for meetings and special events. The adjoining grounds are maintained by the Cincinnati Park Board. Harriet Beecher Stowe House is an Ohio History Connection site.

   [Note: Some reservations were taken as free "tickets".  The new quick RSVP is equivalent.  The point is to get a count for food and drinks.  I am sorry to have caused inconvenience or confusion.  I am still figuring out the fine details of the recent software update.  --Marcy]

The house is located at the corner of Martin Luther King Drive and Gilbert Avenue (ST RT3 and US RT 22) in the historic Walnut Hills Neighborhood of Cincinnati (Hamilton County, Ohio.) It is accessible from I-71.
There is a parking lot and additional off-street parking across the street at Gilbert & Beecher, at the African-American Chamber of Commerce.
Cincinnati Metro Bus Route 1 stops in front of the House and also stops at the Cincinnati Art Museum, Cincinnati Zoo, and other downtown attractions (Fare is $1.75 for adults).
