Robert Frick Left Historic Mark On Twain House
The Mark Twain House in Hartford was many things after the famed author left in 1891; private home, school, warehouse, apartment house, branch library and fledgling museum. By the late 1950s, it was a casual affair, a mix of visitors and a few residents including the house's overseer, Margaret Graves, who owned a parakeet named Snowball who loved to swoop from one door to another, to the delight of visitors.
