Like many Americans grappling with loss in the post-Civil War era, Harriet Beecher Stowe found solace and comfort in Spiritualism, the belief that the spirits of the dead moved and communicated freely in the world of the living.
Explore the complex and fascinating history of Spiritualism among Stowe’s broad social circle. Learn about the intersections among the Spiritualist movement and women’s rights, religion, and social justice writing as you tour the (possibly Spirit-filled) Stowe House.
Tickets are available in advance. Tours will be offered for three days only leading up to Halloween, and are limited to six visitors. (Recommended for ages 10 and up.)
