The Ernest Hemingway Birthplace Home is a large Victorian home built by his maternal grandparents that has been meticulously restored to its Turn-of-The-Century grandeur. One of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, Ernest Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899, and spent the first six years of his life in this grand house surrounded by his family.

Authentic period carpeting, light fixtures and some furniture owned by the Hemingway family, as well as family artifacts and treasures, once again have their place in the home.
