Time Out says

See where the international adventures of this lit-class favorite originated. The irascible master came into the world in a Victorian Queen Anne–style home in 1899. Though the author was oft quoted referring to the near west suburb as “a place of wide lawns and narrow minds,” proud local devotees celebrated the centennial of his birth by completely restoring the space to better reflect Hemingway’s formative years. Look at original furnishings and photos, then, at the museum, about two blocks away at 200 N Oak Park Ave, find out more and pick up Hemingway books, tote bags and postcards.
