This home is one of several on the Hannibal historic home tour......it's across the street from Mark Twain's boyhood home. There is no historic furniture gracing the home, but it does provide a bit of added history to the tour. Included within the home are photos of past years of the yearly chosen winning representatives from the Becky Thatcher/Mark Twain... 更多
When you walk in there is a lady at the counter to check your tickets and she will tell you a little bit about the house. There is a gift shop there too. One of the rooms has puzzles and games for the kids to play with while the adults read about Becky and Tom. Its a must see when... 更多
Learned quite a lot this trip. House is well kept and filled with great photos of the woman is became Becky Thatcher. Too bad it is not known which side of the house was actually hers, but that did not really detract from seeing it.
Mark Twain met Laura Hawkins when she moved into this house which was across the street from his home. She became the basis for Becky Thatcher in his writings. There aren't many rooms to visit in the house. However, it is part of the ticket that you can buy to tour various sites so we checked it out.
This childhood home of the real Becky Thatcher has recently been restored, and they are in the process of getting more artifacts. But it was fun just walking through and reading about Laura Hawkins, the real Becky Thatcher. It was fun to have the experience of all 3 friends.
This house was a very interesting house to tour. I believe it is in the process of accumulating more artifacts to exhibit. But it was fun to walk through the home of Samuel Clemens' first girl friend.
Loved this warming experience, and knowing that a real Becky Tatcher existed, but with a different name, was great. I just envisioned all that in Mark Twain's books.
There is not much in this building but it is the home of Tom Sawyers girlfriend so take the time to see it. It is incl.uded in the all in one ticket and I imagine some find it much more interesting than I did
The building was a duplex so the home itself is not as large as it may seem. Twain and the inspiration for Becky were actual long-time friends, and remained so until his death. No, sh wan't really blond, but a wholesome girl next door who became a school teacher and married a doctor who served in the Civil War.
This site had no relevant information or artifact. A few trinkets from Laura's later life. Not worth the five minutes to walk from Sam Clemens' place across the street and up the stairs. Skip if at all possible if you enjoy history or literature.
