Uncle Tom's Cabin Historic Site
Uncle Tom's Cabin Historic Site commemorates the life of Rev. Josiah Henson - a source of inspiration for Harriet Beecher Stowe's anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. A tour of Uncle Tom's Cabin Historic Site includes a visit to Rev. Josiah Henson's cabin, smokehouse, sawmill, as well as the Henson Family Cemetery. Henson's 5 acre complex is part of an original 200 acres plot purchased in 1841 as a community for escaped slaves who followed the North Star to freedom.
