Long Description:
The Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Brunswick, Maine is where Uncle Tom's Cabin was written while Harriet and Calvin lived there while Calvin worked at Bowdoin College. Although local interest for its preservation as a museum has been strong in the past, it has long been an inn and German restaurant. It most recently changed ownership in 1999 for $865,000. Although, not greatly known for it, one of Harriet's major contributions for American History was helping President Lincoln to write the Emancipation Proclamation
