An important writer and abolitionist, Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote "Uncle Tom's Cabin" in 1852. During the Reconstruction, Stowe and many other northerners came to Florida with dreams of turning the wild, subtropical state into a haven for newly freed slaves. She purchased a home and 30 acres of orange groves in Mandarin, near Jacksonville. The home, shaded by ancient trees, commanded a bluff overlooking the vast St. Johns River. The Harriet B. Stowe Live Oak is a centuries-old tree, loaded with Spanish moss and resurrection fern that sheltered the writer's picturesque river home. The tree grew from a seed handpicked from the Harriet B. Stowe Live Oak.
