HANNIBAL — Molly Brown was "unsinkable," and so, apparently, is her childhood home.
The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that if renovation plans involving several city agencies and local companies succeed, the tiny home where the Titanic survivor grew up could reopen to the public by Memorial Day.
Councilman Lou Barta says the goal is to open the home as a touring museum.
Local attorney Terrell Dempsey and his wife, Vicki, purchased the home 13 years ago and performed extensive renovation. They operated it as a museum until donating it to the city in 2007. But it was not reopened after that and now needs repairs, including work to fix water damage.
Volunteers will perform many of the improvements.
