Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 24, 1968):
Hemingway spent his boyhood summers from 1904 to 1921 in this one-story frame structure called Windemere. His father built the house in 1900 when his son was a year old, and it was here the future writer learned to hunt and fish and appreciate the outdoor life he came to celebrate in his writings. One of America's most influential and popular writers, Hemingway won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 for his "Old Man and the Sea."

Currently, there is no threat to the landmark.
