Hemingway's Boyhood Home For Sale

Bob Goldsborough at the Chicago Tribune reports that Ernest Hemingway's boyhood home is up for sale.

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park has placed the legendary author’s boyhood home in Oak Park up for sale for $525,000.

... Built in 1906, the house was designed by architect Henry G. Fiddelke with help from from Hemingway’s mother, Grace Hall Hemingway.

Hemingway’s family moved from another house in Oak Park to the house, at 600 N. Kenilworth Ave., in 1906, and the author lived there with his family until he enlisted in World War I.

He returned to the house in 1919 to recover from serious war wounds.
