Ernest Hemingway was born in this home on July 21, 1899 to Clarence Edmonds Hemingway (a physician) and Grace Hall-Hemingway (a musician).

The family lived in the home until Ernest was six years old, in the same conservative community as architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

In 1992, the home was purchased by the Ernest Hemingway Foundation, who redesigned the home to reflect the period of the Hemingways residence. Today, the home is open for tours and features many artifacts from the family's life there.
