Clemens FieldLocation: Hannibal, MO
Third & Collier Streets.
Clemens Field, named for local celebrity--Samuel Clemens, was built in 1925 and used initially by a team in an independent league. Clemens Field was used for Hannibal High School football games beginning in 1925. The wooden grandstand burned down in 1936, and rebuilt in concrete and steel with WPA funding. A stone wall was built to enclose the park, and in 1944, German POWs were housed in tents behind barbed wire and the stone fence.
