Founded in 1986, the Literary Landmark dedications have included the homes of famous writers such as Tennessee Williams, also a Key West resident, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and William Faulkner.
Key West boasts several literary designations not only for Williams and Hemingway but also for the Harry S Truman Little White House and the San Carlos Institute in honor of Jose Marti.
This is the second such designation for Ernest Hemingway with the first being his birthplace in Oak Park, Illinois.
The Hemingway Home and Museum was established as a museum in 1964 and Hemingway wrote approximately 6 novels while he lived there from 1931-1940.
It’s a very popular attraction and is known for its six-toed cats which you can see roaming on the property during your visit.
The Hemingway Home is located at 907 Whitehead Street and is open every day from 9am to 5pm.
