Private: Hemingway’s Idaho House

Hemingway’s last home in Ketchum, Idaho will not be opened to the public. Plans to “restore the home, develop a scholarly library, conduct workshops and create a writer- or artist-in-residence program” have been scrapped for the time being due to opposition from residents of the town concerned about “commercialism and traffic.” Still, there are plenty of places where you can breathe the same air Hemingway did. His homes “in Key West, Fla., and Cuba are open to the public as is his birthplace in Oak Park, Ill. There’s also a museum in Piggott, Ark., in the home of his onetime in-laws, where Hemingway often stayed during his second marriage.”
