Hemingway first arrived with his wife Pauline to Key West in 1928. During a three-week wait for a car to be delivered, Hemingway finished A Farewell to Arms in Key West. Also completed at this location were the short story classics "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" and "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber."

After a couple of seasons in Key West, Pauline's Uncle Gus purchased this home for them. The home is filled with mementos of their time in Europe, as well as trophies from Hemingway's African safaris and hunts to the American west.

The home and grounds were a filming location for the 1988 James Bond film, Licence to Kill.

Today, the house is known as The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, and is open to the public for tours.
