Restoration of Molly Brown’s birthplace was a massive undertaking that required hundreds of hours of volunteer labor and materials. The MCHS proudly opened Molly Brown’s Birthplace as a museum on June 28, 1970. In 1998, Terrell and Vicki Dempsey led and financed a second restoration effort to keep the structure sound. Again, hundreds of hours of labor were donated by Hannibal volunteers to restore the home with historical accuracy. The Dempseys donated the structure to the City of Hannibal, who completed another restoration effort in 2011. Today the Birthplace and Museum continues to be owned by the City of Hannibal and is under the management of the Hannibal History Museum Foundation.
