(AP) The federal government has awarded a $150,000 grant to preserve the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center collections in Hartford.


The center features a National Historic Landmark that was once the home of the "Uncle Tom's Cabin" author. She lived in the house for the last 23 years of her life.


The center's collections contain about 6,000 objects and more than 200,000 manuscripts, pamphlets, books and images.


The federal funding matches the center's investment of more than $400,000 to buy and install a new mechanical system, make climate and environmental control improvements and install fire detection and protection at the center.


U.S. Rep. John Larson says the funding will help the center protect her works and collections.
