HEMINGWAY HOUSE


If you're planning to visit Key West and you want information on the area's sights, entertainment and Key West hotels and resorts savings, you've come to the right place!

Hemingway's particularly handsome stone Spanish Colonial house, built in 1851, was one of the first on the island to be fitted with indoor plumbing and a built-in fireplace, and it contains the first swimming pool built on Key West. The author owned the home from 1931 until his death in 1961, and he lived there with about 50 cats, whose descendants, including the famed six-toed cats, still roam the premises.

It was during those years that the Nobel Prize winner wrote some of his most famous works, including For Whom the Bell Tolls, A Farewell to Arms, and The Snows of Kilimanjaro. Fans may want to take the optional half-hour tour. It's interesting and included in the price of admission. If you're feline phobic, however, beware: There are cats everywhere.
