Only 244 steps to the lighthouse!

This park, with its panoramic view of Hannibal and the Mississippi River, is reached by 244 stairs which begin at the north end of Main Street. At the bottom stands the bronze statue, sculpted in 1925, of Twain’s most memorable and mischievous characters, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, walking along the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. The top features a new interpretive panel on the history of the lighthouse. The lighthouse was rebuilt in 2019.
