Hemingway - Pfeiffer Museum

In 1927, the author Ernest Hemingway married his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer. The couple often stayed at her parents' house in Piggott, Arkansas.

The old Pfeiffer house was renovated into a museum in 1999, and an Educational Center has been placed on the site.

The house is open to the public for tours on the hour at 9 a.m. through 3 p.m., Mondays through Fridays; and tours on the hour from 1 to 3 p.m., Saturdays. For more details, visit the Hemingway - Pfeiffer Home Page or the State of Arkansas Attractions Web Site.
