- The Mark Twain House is showing signs of age.
- A renovation project is being funded.
- Artifacts are being affected, but the house is not.
“Thanks to insurance, state bonds, and grants from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, the museum is embarking on a million-dollar mold removal project.”
