Ernest Hemingway

During his early years, Ernest Hemingway spent his summers at his family's cottage on Walloon Lake and the surrounding countryside. Throughout his childhood and early adulthood, Horton Bay, Charlevoix and Petoskey were frequent haunts for this upcoming author. Hemingway affectionately referred to Charlevoix as 'Voix. Each summer, Ernest Hemingway would spend his days with friends, hunting, fishing, playing tennis, and writing. 

Throughout his early works, Hemingway used Horton Bay, Petoskey, and Charlevoix for the setting of many of his early works including: "Up in Michigan", "The Three-Day Blow", his Nick Adams stories, and "The End of Something." 

Hemingway's first marriage to Hadley Richardson took place in Horton Bay. After the wedding, Ernest and Hadley spent their honeymoon at the Hemingway's summer cottage on Walloon Lake. His original marriage certificate is on display at the Charlevoix Historical Society Museum.
