HANNIBAL, MISSOURI

Today we made a little day
trip to the home town of Mark
Twain which was Hannibal, Mo.


This sweet couple dressed
 the part of Tom Sawyer
and Becky Thatcher:


People could take a photo of their
kids pretending to
whitewash the fence!




This photo below shows the boyhood
home of Mark Twain (real name Samuel
Clemens- 1835-1920) on the right and
the museum on the left. 





Of course all the Victorian
homes really caught my eyes and
especially this one:


Many were being restored
 and
others needed to be:





Additionally, this town was the
 birthplace of Molly Brown (survivor
on the Titanic).

I remember my first trip to Hannibal Missouri back in 1962 on my way to visit my family in Columbia.
Hannibal was a quite historic little town back then

I like your pictures of the old homes

What a beautiful town! I love the architecture on the buildings. The Victorian homes are just beautiful....Painted Ladies they call them in Cape May, New Jersey. Looks like a lovely trip.
