The Time the Oak Ridge Boys Stayed at the Garth Mansion in Hannibal
The Oak Ridge Boys have been to the Tri-States a few times and even performed at the Adams County Fair in 2018. But they have been in the Tri-States way before that.
Back in 2009, The Oak Ridge Boys stayed and toured the Garth Mansion in Hannibal, and there is video to prove it. Posted on their YouTube Channel, you can see the guys touring the mansion and getting a small history lesson on the chair that Samuel Clemens (mark Twain) sat in when he visited the mansion.
I remember when they were here in 2018 at the Adams Country Fair, it was a HUGE turnout and really surprised me as to how many people (both young and old) love the band. Known for their big hit "Elvira," and many more, the band has a very big following still. They continue to be on the road this summer, and if you want to see them will be in Kansas City, Missouri on September 24.
You yourself can stay at the Garth Mansion as it has been turned into a B&B. the mansion is a big piece of Hannibal history and even if you don't stay there, it's really a fun place to tour and learn about the history of the house and builder.
