At the foot of the stairway

The Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn statue is located at the foot of the stairway that leads to the lighthouse. The area around the statue is nicely landscaped.

Didn't go up to it, since it was raining, but did pull over and take a picture of it. Looks pretty real and great detail. There is light house above it on the hill, but it was a little far and steep to climb for me. But is neat you can see it from the statues.

It's a nice statue that is landscaped and well maintained. It is tucked away at the end of the street - close to the Museum and the Brewery. Good family photo spot.

We visited the statue when a bus load of students were also visiting. It was a wonderful time with the students interacting around the statue and expressing their interest.

Hannibal in July during the annual Tom Sawyer Days is the time to go! Mud volleyball championships, whitewashing races, Tom and Becky contests, etc.

If you hike up Cardiff Hill, you'll see this statue whether you intend to or not! It's at the base of the hill and overlooks the Mississippi River. This is - of course - a necessary stop for folks on a Mark Twain pilgrimage.

You can stand next to the statute and have your picture taken. I loved to read Mark Twain's books when I was young so it feels great to be here in person and walk the streets and see the Mississippi River.
