Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site

The Province of Ontario has enacted new safety measures which may impact your experience. Restrictions for indoor attractions include:

• Museums, galleries, zoos, science centres, landmarks, historic sites, botanical gardens and similar attractions, amusement parks and waterparks, tour and guide services and fairs, rural exhibitions, and festivals must all close.

Outdoor establishments are permitted to remain open with restrictions and with spectator occupancy, where applicable, limited to 50 per cent capacity.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site commemorates the life of Reverend Josiah Henson.  Recognized for his contributions to the abolition movement and for his work in the Underground Railroad, he rose to international fame after Harriet Beecher Stowe acknowledged his memoirs as a source for her 1852 anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin.  It was Henson’s life experiences that inspired Ms. Stowe’s creation of the character Uncle Tom in her 1852 outcry against slavery.
