  • The house is a double treat. For those who are interested in Hemingway there is a tremendous amount of history shared about his early life in Oak Park. For house tour lovers, you get up close and personal to a grand 1890s Queen Anne Victorian - albeit not to everyone’s taste - but an excellent tour in a period-accurate, beautifully restored house. Our docent, Sue, was exceptional!
  • The place is in perfect condition, and the tour guides to a fabulous job of bringing Hemingway's childhood to life with vivid detail. I was a few minutes late but the tour guide covered the parts my friend and I missed later. They're also happy to answer any questions. Hemingway fans would find them a wealth of information and resources.
