Don't miss this opportunity to own a Victorian Bed & Breakfast in Hannibal, Missouri. The Reagan's Queen Anne B&B established in 1999 has two private bedrooms with full baths and two suites with charming baths. 313 North 5th was built (1889) in the Queen Anne style by one of Hannibal's greatest philanthropist, Wilson B. Pettibone. The main floor showcases 19th century detailed intricate millwork, Tiffany-like stained glass windows, Rookwood tiled fireplace, ornate mantles and a variety of rich woods milled in Hannibal during the height of Hannibal's lumber business. Three floors of finished space offer the guest a Victorian experience in Mark Twain's Boyhood hometown. Being located in the Central Park Historic District affords National Register status. A 3 block walk to Hannibal's Main Street makes this an excellent location for tourists. Wrap around porch provides a relaxing outdoor experience. Owner would consider selling the property as a residence rather than a turn key business.

    Can’t you just imagine Mark Twain sitting in the parlor smoking a cigar?

    That’s the Mississippi around the corner and down Hill Street. The exterior colors suit me fine, and all the fretwork and stained glass is splendid. But the Rookwood tiles on that fireplace just put this over the top for me.

    Fantastic Fretwork! Likely from the Toledo, Ohio firm of Briggs & Leibius. All of these patterns can be found in the Briggs & Leibius catalog. One of my favorites is the wavy ray with balls pattern. There is a variation here with straight rays. Gorgeous work!

      Agreed, Paul. Interior fretwork is used to great effect to denote divisions of space within the house. It’s in use as a bed & breakfast so it retains more period flavor than one often finds in houses of this age. I would ask how fretwork from a firm in Toledo, Ohio, ended up in the Mississippi town of Hannibal but it was as easy as taking measurements, selecting patterns from a catalog, and sending in the order to be delivered by rail or boat. There are more different patterns of fretwork designs here than are common in most houses. Like the number of stained glass windows found in houses of the period, some had no fretwork pieces whatsoever while a few, like this example, had a profusion of fretwork pieces. Sadly, many of the most ornately decorated houses with fretwork did not survive the 20th century purges of all things Victorian. Luckily, this one did. Since I consider even machine made (assembled by hand) fretwork pieces to be art, then this would have been classified as an “Artistic” home back in the day.
