Camp Milton Historic PreserveThe Harriet Beecher Stowe House was built in 1833 to serve as the residence of Lane Theological Seminary's president. Harriet Beecher moved to Cincinnati in 1832 with her father, Dr. Lyman Beecher, who had been appointed seminary president. It was in Cincinnati, across the Ohio River from Kentucky, a slave state, where Harriet learned about the evils of slavery, which inspired her book, "Uncle Tom's Cabin." Harriet Beecher Stowe and her family maintained a residence purchased in the 1860's in Mandarin near Jacksonville. The Stowe House in Cincinnati is currently operated as a cultural and educational center which promotes Black history, and is home to a towering white ash tree. This tree grew from a seed handpicked from the Harriet Beecher Stowe White Ash.
