AtoZ Challenge: I - Introducing Hannibal's Wax Museum!

Picture


Haunted House on Hill Street

In keeping with yesterday's AtoZ Challenge "H" post, Haunted Hannibal, I thought I would introduce the latest spooky attraction to hit the town. Actually, the Haunted House on Hill Street has been around a long time, but it's been closed and for sale for the past seven years. Someone finally bought the rundown house last year, cleaned it up and installed twenty-seven life-size wax sculptures, featuring everyone from Mark Twain to Aunt Polly to Injun Joe. 

So, be sure to stop by the Haunted House on Hill Street described in Twain's novels. It's located right next door to the Becky Thatcher house. Did you notice the skeleton in the upstairs window? I'm going to stop by later today and see if I can peek in the windows. If any of those wax figures move, blink or wink...

  5. Wax museums are kind of creepy. But then again, I haven't been to one. Which I should do. Buena Park isn't far, and they have one...

  7. I've been to lots of Madame Tussaud's. So no fear of wax museums, even haunted ones!

  10. That's a clever way to use a haunted house.

  11. See, putting a wax museum into a known, or even suspected, haunted house is just asking for trouble. You just know the wax figures are going to come to life and hack someone to death eventually. It's inevitable. Like building a house next to a train track or a rendering plant, eventually it's going to suck.
