Hannibal Missouri

I was excited to be able to visit Hannibal Missouri.  It is a very cute little town, filled to the brim with fabulous old buildings.  The streets were lined with them.  We can't forget Mark Twain,one of the world's most beloved authors.  He grew up in Hannibal, and used many of his childhood memories in his stories.

Mark Twain's father's law office.  It is located right across the street from his home.

The grainery 143 (800x600) 
This is Becky Thatcher's home, Tom Sawyer's sweetheart. 

The grainery 137 (800x600) 
This is the view down the street from Mark Twain's house.  Can't you just picture the hustle and bustle of way back when?

Love, Love, Love this old building!

There is something about this huge mug of root beer that makes me think the Mark Twain Dinette is worth a stop.

I am always amazed at antique architecture.  Every little detail was thought of back then.  Nowadays, buildings just arnen't as pretty. 

 If you would like more information about Hannibal, or the Mark Twain museum, visit

Interesting fact, Sam Clemens, aka Mark Twain, was born in 1835, and died in 1910, two years in which Halley's Comet was in the skies.
