We just visited the Mark Twain museum which owns the Becky Thatcher house now. They are restoring it to open to the public next year. We got to peek in since there were workers there and talk to two nice young men. They told us the paint is now the original color and other interesting history. Turns out the girl who lived there was Mark Twain's childhood sweetheart so he named her Becky Thatcher in the book. Will return to see it finished. Good to see a museum project like this.
