The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum – The man himself

Besides the architecture of the home in and out and the interesting furniture, there are many things that tell you about the man himself; about the life of Ernest Hemingway.  Besides pictures and paintings of him throughout the house like these here…

There were bits of his history such as these medals and ribbons he received during WWI.  It was fascinating to read how “Lt. Hemingway, although wounded in 237 places, managed to carry a wounded and helpless comrade to safety before he himself collapsed.  For this he was given the Silver Medal of Valor, the second highest award of the Italian command.”  In this case are also receipts for land purchased and one for $217.50 for city taxes.  That must have been steep back in 1930.  History books are one thing but actual pieces of history like these are wonderful.

    It is a fascinating history. The city taxes would be around $3,100 in today’s dollars. That was very high. If the city tax rate kept up with inflation, taxes today would be $44,000.
