Harriet Beecher Stowe Center Hours and Rates

Visit the Stowe Center! Open Year Round


Exciting preservation work is taking place in the Stowe House!

The Stowe Center remains OPEN FOR TOURS while preservation work is completed.

The 1873 Visitor Center and 1884 Katharine Seymour Day House will host the tour experience through completion of work in spring 2017. Stowe Center staff will offer visitors a behind-the-scenes look inside the Stowe House as construction allows.

"Even though the house was under renovation, we did not feel as if we missed out on a thing. Our tour guide was engaging and enthusiastic, and we walked away from the tour having learned a lot." -- Visitor, Dedham, MA as posted on TripAdvisor.
