About Hannibal, Missouri
Best known as the boyhood home of Mark Twain, Hannibal, Missouri has drawn tourists from all fifty states in the U.S. and over sixty countries. Hannibal is a welcoming town; most residents enjoy the visitors, and the city’s economy benefits from the tourism.
Before Samuel Langhorne Clemons penned Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and the town of Hannibal into infamy, America’s Hometown experienced a sudden surge in population. There were only about 30 residents in 1830, but access to the Mississippi river and railroad transportation caused the population to skyrocket. By 1850, Hannibal had grown to a city of 2,020.
Although it does not serve as the seat of either Marion or Ralls County (the city falls into both jurisdictions) its current population of 17,606 makes it the largest city in Marion County.
Hannibal Auto Accidents and Highway 61
Hannibal is located at the intersection of Interstate 72 and U.S. routes 24, 36, and 61. With St. Louis only two hours away, Hannibal highways are often littered with weekend travelers. The lower half of highway 61 is no exception.
Highway 61 has become a local controversy in Missouri after a tragic crossover crash took the life of a Troy resident and her two young daughters. Schultz & Myers is representing the family of the fatal accident, and we are already using our voice to help increase safety along the stretch of highway between St. Louis and Hannibal, Missouri, to help avoid future dangerous car and semi-truck accidents.
