Northern Michigan Hemingway Sculpture Idea was Born Decades Ago in Cuba

This bronze sculpture sits very near the place where Ernest was first introduced to this picturesque community (and lake) in the fall of 1899. He was just three months old that year when he came with his parents, Grace (Hall) and Clarence Hemingway, and his older sister, Marcelline, traveling from Chicago via steamer to Harbor Springs, then several trains into Walloon Lake before taking another smaller steam launch to their newly built cottage, Windemere, on the lake’s North Shore.
