The boyhood home of Mark Twain is getting a makeover along its riverfront.
The changes will include a new river wall, event space and docking sites for three riverboats, including the Mark Twain. The improvements, in the works since the 1990s, will address a number of longstanding problems, according to Parks and Recreation director Andy Dorian.
“Failing river walls, old parking lots, dilapidated bathrooms,” Dorian said. “Our fountains were broken.”
