Moving to Connecticut

Written by Alyssa Howard,

Connecticut is a state rich in pivotal American history. Famous 19th Century writer Mark Twain lived here, and his Hartford home where he created characters Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer is open for visitors. Also nearby is the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, where visitors can learn all about the famous author and her novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which was an important force for abolition during the pre-Civil War period.
