Visit the birthplace where Molly's rags-riches story began. One of six children of John and Johanna Tobin, Molly lived and worked in Hannibal until the age of 18. She rose to fame after moving to Colorado, marrying J.J. Brown, who struck the largest vein of gold known at that time, and the retelling of her heroic actions during the Titanic tragedy.
Within the humble two story house made of wood paneling, one of America's most important cultural figures not only came of age, but gained experiences that would contribute to some of the country's most memorable literary moments.
