In 1927, Ernest Hemingway married Pauline Pfeiffer of Piggott, Arkansas. She was a graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism in 1918, and was working with the Paris Vogue magazine when they met at a party.

The couple was married from 1927-1940, and the Pfeiffer family financed much of Hemingway's writing career- purchasing the couple a car and a home in Florida.

Hemingway wrote much of A Farewell to Arms in the barn studio of this residence, and today it is a museum and educational center.
