Must see · History Museum · Museum
Rockcliffe Mansion is located in Hannibal, Missouri (USA) and was built in 1898 by John J. Cruikshank, Jr, a descendant of Scottish immigrants, whose fortune was founded on lumber. He erected the residence on West Bird Street. It came to be acknowledged as the most imposing, beautiful and costly residential structure in that part of the state of Missouri. "By reason of its location on a high, rocky eminence, overlooking the entire city [and the Mississippi River], it [was] termed 'Rock Cliff' [later known as "Rockcliffe"], and is one of the many attractions of the city invariably viewed by strangers and tourists visiting Hannibal." It is located in the Maple Avenue Historic District.

  • Booked a group tour with Juan as a stop on the Hannibal Trolley. Everyone in our party of 18 thoroughly enjoyed it! Juan was also our tour guide and was very informative about the property as well as local history. They are still in the process of refurbishing the exterior, and I'm sure in the end it will be the exquisite mansion it was in the day. The property is also a B&B, which would be fun to do to get the full feel of the mansion. Definitely a must see while you're in Hannibal!
  • I want to say first off, these hosts are absolutely amazing! It was by far one of the best stays I have ever had! The room was beautiful! My husband and I came down as a gift for me graduating with my MBA. We came in October. The view from the front porch of the mansion will take your breath away in the fall. In the evening of our first stay we had wine, cheese, and crackers. It was wonderful to be able to chat about the mansion and enjoy the company of other guests/hosts. The breakfast the next day was the absolute very best I’ve ever had! I would recommend anyone who loves history to come see this place ! You won’t be disappointed! It is one of the most memorable trips I have ever had.
