Didn't seem like a house

It was exceptionally clean, but didn't seem to have much going on. Nice pictures of the Becky Thatcher and Tom Sawyer contests through the years.

The hsitorial photos were very interesting- offering lots of facts. NIce gift shop. School room was set up as it would have been when Mark Twain lived there. Wooded desks and blackboard. Floors appeared to be original. Hours are from 9-5.

Then you have to visit this place, too. A ticket to the Mark Twain boyhood home gets you into this house as well, and there is a lot of information on the background and people inhabiting Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer world. It doesn't take long to see, but is worth the time.

How can you see Mark Twain's boyhood home and not see Becky Thatcher's house? House has recently undergone a perfect and very expensive restoration.

It showed pictures of Laura the girl that Samuel Clemmons based the character Becky Thatcher on. It also showed local kids who have portrayed Tom and Becky through the years.

I did like seeing the artifacts they had in here. The cool thing was seeing who all had toured this attraction. Staff weren't real friendly. The place was in great shape.

There are items that belong to "Becky" and pictures of her with Twain, but nothing like Mark Twain's home. I hope more work will be done to decorate it. This is included in the cost of the admittance of Twain's house.

This was a package ticket, about 6 places included in ticket. Mostly just hope to see, no personal items. However was interesting. Brought back memories from reading the Mark Twain books.

While I am a Mark Twain fan, this building was only mildly interesting. It recently underwent a restoration, and the building looks to be restored, but there are not many items in the home that were Becky's personal belongings. Glad we got to see it, though.
