There’s a Lot of Mold Infesting the Mark Twain Museum in Connecticut

In the preface of Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, the narrator describes meeting a mysterious man on a castle tour. As they walk through the hallways, his new friend begins talking about the Knights of the Round Table, speaking of ancient events as if they were yesterday.

Key Takeaways:

  • 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.”
