“Interesting historical site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We had listened to a Mark Twain audiobook on the way to Hannibal and it really help Hannibal and the historic homes come alive. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

“A Good Place to Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

The house was under construction on my last trip, but I grew up visiting Becky Thatcher's house. It is right near Mark Twain's boyhood home, so it makes sense to make a quick stop here, as well!

“Under construction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

This attraction was under construction during the time we visited and no idea when it would be completed, so all we got was a picture of the outside.
