The Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum is directed by Henry Sweets who has been with the Mark Twain Museum 35 years, serving in many capacities, including director.

"We are eager to work with organizations outside of Hannibal. That's why we are seeking membership in [QSFA]. You have many like-minded members. The association through your organization will help us reach more for collaborations," says Sweets.

Visitors may tour the historic buildings where Twain spent his childhood and see unique Clemens family artifacts and 15 original Norman Rockwell paintings of Tom and Huck. The boyhood home is designated as a National Historic Landmark.

The Quincy Society of Fine Arts' national award-winning programs: (1) strengthen education, (2) expand our economy, and (3) insure cost-effective arts programs and services for everyone!
