Remembrance of An American Past

Like all of us, Mark Twain told stories about his childhood in order to understand who he had become as an adult.

The Boy
In this house, Sam Clemens lived a pretty typical life for a small-town American boy in the 1850's. Yet his life here helped to shape him into Mark Twain, one of the greatest writers in the world.

The Writer
As a writer in the 1870s, Mark Twain returned to this house in his memory. He used his imagination to turn the people, places, and events of his childhood into stories that captured the soul of America.

The Man
Mark Twain walked back into this house on a visit to Hannibal after he was world famous. Memories of his boyhood days filled him with both pleasure and regret.
