Ernest Hemingway

109 Mason,
Charlevoix, MI 49720

Ernest Hemingway had deep connections to Northern Michigan. Throughout his childhood, Hemingway would spend much of his summers in Horton Bay and explore the shores of Lake Charlevoix. Ernest Hemingway married his first wife, Hadley, in a small ceremony on the shores of Lake Charlevoix. You can actually view the original marriage license at the Charlevoix Historical Society. Hemingway's connection to Northern Michigan is reflected in several short stories and books including the "Nick Adams" stories, "The Last Good Country", "Up in Michigan", "Summer People", "The End of Something", "On Writing", and "The Indians Moved Away".
