Mark Twain Birthplace State Historic Site, located in Florida, Missouri in Monroe County, is maintained by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources as a state historic site.

Samuel Clemens, later known by his nom de plume Mark Twain was born in the two room house on November 30, 1835. The house was rented by his parents Jane (née Lampton; 1803–1890) and John Marshall Clemens (1798–1847). Four years later, the family moved to Hannibal, Missouri.

The site includes a public reading room, several of Twain's first editions, a handwritten manuscript of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and furnishings from Twain’s Connecticut home.[1]
