Secluded from the noises of Hannibal... but also just minutes from town.

The cave was made famous by the author Mark Twain. Mark Twain grew up in Hannibal and had spent much of his childhood playing in the cave near his home. His memory of the cave stayed with him into adulthood and eventually became immortalized in his writings.

The frame house known as the Mark Twain Boyhood Home was constructed around 1843 or 1844. The John Marshall Clemens family lived here until leaving town in 1853. Following their departure, this became a rental property.
