Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site

In accordance with the province’s Framework to Reopening Ontario current ‘Red – Control’ status in Windsor Essex, several measures are in place to ensure your safety at most businesses and attractions.

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.
