Hannibal's rich history as a frontier town in the 19th century and a manufacturing center and tourist destination in the 20th century includes those who made history and those who documented the stories. From the forty-niners streaming through town on their way to the California gold rush to the WPA (Works Progress Administration) workers expanding Hannibal's infrastructure, Hannibalians contributed greatly to the history books.
In honor of Hannibal's early historians and history-makers, we are grateful to our Bicentennial Sponsors at the Historian Level.
