It's a statue of Tom and Huck. It's a good photo opportunity. It also marks the beginning of the stairs up to the lighthouse. There isn't much you can say about it beyond that. Artistically, it's pretty good.
This statue is at the base of the lighthouse steps in Hannibal. I recommend it highly. It is a great spot for pictures. Then you must go up the lighthouse steps and enjoy the beautiful view of the Mississippi!
Great stop for a photo opportunity before making the trek up to the light house. This statue set is one of many in the town of Hannibal, with great attention to detail.
At the end of the main street of the historic Hannibal downtown, stands this appropriately place tribute to the two boys who exemplify the hearts and souls of 19th Century boyhood. Easy to view from street level, the statue is in a pleasantly maintained park area on a hill at the end of the street.
If you are coming to Hannibal you should stop here if nothing but for the photo op. There are also lots of quaint shops nearby.
I have taken my grands to stand in front and take a picture and every year I take my students from my English class to tour all the points of interest and we take a picture there as well. It's just a great part of the Mark Twain experience!
