The statue which is close to the Mark Twain boyhood home museum is very poignant and should be included with a visit to the Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) statue in Riverview Park which is nearby.

You can see them walking along as pals or buddies would do. Within a block you can "whitewash" Tom's fence for free (Tom would get his buddies to pay him for that opportunity).

Statue is for everyone to see- not hidden with a cost. Interesting and helps keep the ambiance of the town.

Located at the end of the street just up from the home of Mark Twain and at the beginning of the old town. So stop, get some photos and enjoy the the views.
