We were here years ago but stopped on our way home; it is a bit disappointing to see such commercialism making the square look "artificial" -- well it is artificial since none of it was real in the first place, but it is no longer as simple as it was years ago. Seeing Samuel Clemson's childhood home was good, but the rest of it kind of cheesy. Won't make much sense if you don't know anything about Mark Twain (pseudonym), how he came to take that name as an author, or tales of Huck and Tom -- and Becky Thatcher (who now has her own house on the square). There is a cute photo-op place with a sign, white fence, and bucket with large paint brushes if you want to pretend you were one of the sucker Tom Sawyer talked into "whitewashing" a fence for him as an honor and for free.
