Hemingway House, Key West

Papa Hemingway's bed with a six-toed cat asleep on top. There are over 40 cats resident at the house, about half with six toes in the front. Hemingway had about as many cats at the house when he lived there.

Hemingway's fishing reelHe wrote until noon, fished until dark, and drank away the night.

The study above the carriage house, where Hemingway wrote The Green Hills of Africa, Farewell to Arms, Big Two Hearted River, The Sun Also Rises, Hills Like White Elephants, The Old Man and the Sea, The Killers, Snows of Kilimenjaro, Short and Happy Life of Francis Macomber, To Have and Have Not, and For Whom the Bell Tolls. The study is supposed to be exactly as it was when he wrote there.
