Hmmm. the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, to which I have been more than once, is in HARTFORD, CT where she lived from 1873 to her death in 1896. Evidently there are 4 other year-round Harriet Beecher Stowe houses: Cincinnati Ohio (1832-1850), Brunswick, ME (1850-1853, where she wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin), Andover, MA(1853-1864), a previous home at Nook Farm in Hartford, CT (1864-1870, and a winter home in Mandarin, FL. I suggest your question should have been more specific (and I see several others below who feel the same!).

What important history--but you missed a big one--the Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Cincinnati, Ohio! She lived here the 18 years immediately before writing Uncle Tom's Cabin, living as a teacher, mother, writer, and friend of the Underground Railroad. The relationships she made and experiences she had in this "border city" before the Civil War was the catalyst for her activism. You can plan a trip by visiting www.stowehousecincy.org.

Also--an AARP video about it from a couple years back: https://www.facebook.com/AARPOH/videos/2010247219135544/

Which house in Connecticut, Maine, or Florida?  The Harriet Beecher Stowe House, The Stowe House, Stowe Winter House.  As only on fits the answers, fine but question is not a good one.
