History & Ambiance

Experience the magnificent, historical ambiance of The Great Room, a beautiful gathering place in the quaint Mississippi River town of Hannibal Missouri, boyhood home of Mark Twain.

Built in 1890, this breathtaking Gothic Revival structure was built as a Pilgrim Congregational Church, eventually transitioning into a Knights of the Pythius clubhouse for more than 30 years. The building has gone through various transformations over the past century, all the while maintaining the beautifully crafted interior.

Today, The Great Room is the perfect site to host a truly memorable event or meeting. The amazing 40 foot vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, and ornamental woodwork make this location an ideal setting for weddings, receptions, business meetings, community and cultural events, private parties, and family gatherings year round.
