This scene was discussed for over a year and the specific wall was hunted since 2018. But now it is finished. With Deborah White’s perseverance contributions came rolling in and the wall was secured. Over thirty-five separate donors came forward and paid for the design. The wall, owned by Arif Dagin, was selected and repaired. This past month I began one of the best exposed walls in Hannibal. At the corner of Third and Broadway this scene will be viewed by thousands of residents and tourists alike. The design showcase the Mark Twain Zephyr that was decommissioned in 1959. The Art Deco styled train graced the rails between St. Louis and Iowa. The steam locomotive is the mail train that crossed Missouri between Hannibal and St. Joseph. Hannibal’s Union Station Depot is also shown. The mural spans 60’ wide and 14’ tall.
