Fun Facts: Harriett Slept Here

Harriet Beecher Stowe

In the 1870s and 1880s, Harriet Beecher Stowe and her family vacationed in what is now North Mandarin, on their St. Johns River estate. While living there after the Civil War, Stowe wrote Palmetto Leaves, arguably an eloquent piece of promotional literature directed at Florida's potential Northern investors at the time. The book was published in 1873 and describes Northeast Florida and its residents.  In 1870, Stowe created an integrated school in Mandarin for children and adults. This predated the national movement toward integration by more than a half century.

"Brenda is an amazing person to work with. I was a first time home buyer and completely lost when I started to search. Working with Brenda was a learning process, not just a home buying process. I think many realtors would have given up on me a few months into it, because I just could not make a decision. Brenda was very patient, and in the end, it paid off, because I found the perfect home."
