Mark Twain Boyhood Home

Saves: 16

Even though the name of the town is different, Tom Sawyer's hometown of St. Petersburg is said to be modeled on Mark Twain's own boyhood hometown of Hannibal. When you visit his childhood home, you can see why - it is like stepping into the pages of "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer." The charming museum houses much of the original Rockwell illustrations for Twain's books and the house overlooks the river clearly evoking scenes from the classic novel.
