Located on the northern edge of Hannibal, Missouri, the 110-acre campus is beautifully situated on bluffs rising above the Mississippi River. The city of Hannibal, the major city of Northeast Missouri, is located approximately 100 miles north of St. Louis and 30 miles northeast of Clarence Cannon Dam andMark Twain Lake, one of Missouri's most attractive outdoor recreational areas. Affectionately known today as “America’s Hometown,” Hannibal played an important role in the early history of the United States. Settled in 1817, the city served as a strategic river port and railroad town, where goods transported along the Mississippi were transferred to railroads for shipment to the West. Missouri's most famous son, Samuel Langhorne Clemens,higher known asMarkTwain, spent his boyhood years inHannibal. Two of Twain's greatest books, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, are based on Hannibal, its surroundings, and its people. Hannibal’s charming historic district, located along the banks of the Mississippi, features the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum, a river boat, 3-D movie theatre, shops, and restaurants.
