ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – An effort to raise money to improve the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum in the author’s Missouri hometown of Hannibal is off to a strong start.

The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that just six weeks into the effort, the fundraising campaign has already raised 75 percent of its $600,000 goal.

Twain grew up in Hannibal and many of his most famous works are based on his life there.
