The Library, Elmira College, Elmira, New York

[LIB0555] Special Collection The Mark Twain Archive, located on the second floor of the Gannett-Tripp Library, houses the collection of Mark Twain materials belonging to Elmira College.

Rich woodwork, period furnishings and marble accents create a setting reflective of the significance of the collection and offer a quiet, comfortable work area for Mark Twain researchers. The ceiling panels and the relief above the mantle are from Klapproth's Tavern, which Twain was known to frequent during his summers in Elmira. [Website]
