American novelist, short-story writer, and journalist Ernest Hemingway’s final home, and Mary Hemingway’s home until 1986, is now managed by The Community Library Association as a private residence for visiting writers, and the site of ongoing preservation efforts.

The Ketchum, Idaho, house, and its associated 13.9 acres of land alongside the Big Wood River, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its association with the great writer and because it is an exquisite example of mid-century architecture. The house is incorporated into a larger historical and literary program that explores Hemingway’s abiding connections to the remote and rugged region, a place he visited for two decades, and the place where he turned to make his final home after his departure from Cuba.
