The Garth Mansion in Hannibal is for sale for $1.975 million and already have dropped in price from $500,000. Sitting on 36-acres of land the property includes three cottages, 6-bedrooms, 6.4-bathrooms, and a ton of Hannibal's history. Built in 1871 by John Garth (one of the closest friends to Mark Twain), he purchased a large plot of farm property after returning from New York. The house recently has been used as a bed & breakfast, and has been rated one of the best B & Bs in Missouri by Tripadvisor.

The house is described as being rich in Italianate architecture will 11 private rooms and baths. It's the perfect setting to have weddings ceremonies and receptions at with so many beautiful views in every direction on the property. The house also comes with a large restaurant for catering parties or just throwing a huge party yourself and not one not two but fourteen fireplaces, you won't be complaining its cold during the winter months. Did I mention it also has plenty of storage for wine in the basement? Just saying'.

What's really neat is that the guest rooms are named after the former owners, and even Mark Twain himself. You can choose to stay in the John Garth RoomSamuel Clemens Roomthe Rosewood RoomAvie's Roomand more. I really hope that the new owners keep it as a bed & breakfast, the current owners have worked so hard to make this one of the best places to stay for guest in Hannibal and I would hate to see that change.
