Samuel Clemens better known as Mark Twain was the author of many novels and short stories including the classics "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". Clemens was born in 1835 in Florida, Missouri and moved to Hannibal at age four and remained there until he was seventeen. Hannibal is viewed as his inspiration for the river town St. Petersburg in his novels. This statue was erected in 1913, three years after Clemens' death by the State of Missouri.
