If ever there was a town with multiple fascinating attractions that take you back in time, it's America's Hometown - Hannibal.

Most of the attractions take you back to the 1800s, to the time of Tom and Becky and Huck and Jim, or to the Victorian era, when Mark Twain was the toast of the literary world.

But, Hannibal has one attraction that's harkens back to a time that most of us "of a certain age," remember fondly.

Steven and Jacklyn Karlock came to Hannibal in 2016 and opened Karlock's Kars and Pop Culture in a restored produce warehouse at 114 South 3rd.

The Karlock's came to the Midwest from California, where Steve had been a collector, as the name implies, of classic cars and all things pop culture.

If you're a classic car fan, Karlock's features vehicles dating back to 1940, all restored and shined up like they just came off the showroom floor.

On the pop culture side, you name it - jukeboxes, Elvis memorabilia, pinball machines and toys ranging from Star Wars to Big Bird to Yosemite Sam.

And, admission to see all this is only eight dollars for adults.

NOTE: We should mention that Steven Karlock died in August and Jacklyn in September. We certainly hope that this attraction that is one of Hannibal's hidden gems will be able to stay open for us to enjoy.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
