The Ernest Hemingway Birthplace

339 North Oak Park Avenue, Oak Park, IL 60302, USA
708-848-2222

This Queen Anne-style Victorian house was built in 1890 for Ernest Hemingway’s maternal grandparents. With a wraparound porch, elegant parlor, and meticulously restored architectural features, Hemingway’s boyhood home was the first residence in Oak Park to have electricity. It was also within walking distance of the trails and nature preserves that so inspired the author’s later work.
