“Tom & Huck's favorite play area”
The Mark Twain Memorial Lighthouse sits on 10 acres of park atop Cardiff Hill, a favorite play area of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and the gang. Cross streets are E. Rock and E. Cardiff. Parking is available near the top. There is also a rear entrance from Cardiff Hill Drive, offering handicapped accessible parking. There are 244 steps leading uphill to the Lighthouse from the north end of Main Street in historic downtown Hannibal. The Lighthouse offers a panoramic view of Hannibal and the Mississippi River. Unfortunately, due to structural concerns, the interior of the Lighthouse is not open to the public.
Nice view. Quick stop to move and take a photo.
Navigation through this app takes you down a dead end road.
This address was wrong. It didn't take us to the lighthouse.
Such a neat town and the lighthouse has a great view of the Mississippi River. You can drive up an unmarked road or just park at the bottom and enjoy the walk up the many steps!
Definitely worth a stop when visiting the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum. A short walk up the hill from Historic Downtown Hannibal and the Tom & Huck statue.
