Description

Harriet Beecher Stowe Home Marker, Mandarin, Jacksonville, Fl.

This marker, at the location of the historic winter home of Harriet Beecher Stowe, is located in the Mandarin area of Jacksonville, Florida, USA.

The marker reads as follows:

"In 1867, Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe and her husband Calvin bought thirty acres of the Fairbanks Grant in Mandarin which served as their winter home until the winter of 1883-1884. The move to Florida was due to plans for philanthropy among the Negroes and a desire to benefit her son's health. While in Florida, Mrs. Stowe, author of "Uncle Tom's Cabin", wrote sketches called "Palmetto Leaves". The Stowes were active in local charitable and religious activities."
