Stowe House named historic landmark


Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said the Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Hartford is one of 13 new national historic landmarks. Salazar and National Park Service director Jonathan Jarvis announced the new landmarks Monday, calling them important sites that help tell the story of America. Stowe was a 19th century writer and antislavery activist who published more than 30 books, including ‘‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin.’’ Officials said her house on Farmington Avenue, right next to Mark Twain’s house, is associated with her later career as a reformer for women’s and family issues.
