Pejepscot Historical Society
The Harriet Beecher Stowe House on Federal Street in Brunswick was the home of Harriet and her husband Calvin Stowe.
Calvin, a graduate of Bowdoin College, returned to the college to teach from 1850 to 1853. They previously had lived in Cincinnati, a community active in the Underground Railroad. Her experiences there helped form her abolitionist views.
Her father, Lyman Beecher, preached abolitionist sermons and many of her siblings were involved in reform causes.
