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.

I didn't know you can rate statues. Anyway, it is nicely located on a hill overlooking the main street of Hannibal. Its proximity to the historic area and museum make it very convenient.
