Mark Twain's Boyhood Home

Samuel Clemens, the American author and humorist known best by his pen name Mark Twain, grew up Hannibal, Missouri. Clemens' boyhood hometown provided the setting and basis for the characters in his stories about Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer.

The home in which he lived as a boy is now part of a museum. Each room contains a statue of Mark Twain with a quote taken from his commentary as he visited the home late in his life.
