Jim’s Journey: The Huck Finn Freedom Center in Hannibal, Missouri

If a trip to the childhood home of Mark Twain in Hannibal, Missouri, is on your spring or summer itinerary, be sure and visit Faye Dant’s phenomenal “Jim’s Journey” museum! The Center has been renovated and will celebrate its ribbon cutting on May 28, 2021. I’m pleased to have contributed sketches of Harvey Quarles and his wife, Lucinda, for the occasion. Harvey was the son of Daniel Quarles, Mark Twain’s friend and the model for his character “Jim” in the novel, Huckleberry Finn.
