Ernest Hemingway spent many productive writing years surrounded by family life, bountiful hunting, fishing, and being visited by a circle of like-minded friends in his Whitehead Street home in Key West, Florida
It was built by the architect Léon Delune in 1904. He left his 'signature' on the house in a very unique way - his last name means 'of the moon,' in French, and he worked images of the different phases of the moon into the design. The big window at the top was originally designed so that there would be enough natural light for a painter's studio at the top of the building. It's located in Brussels, 6 Rue du Lac.

Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway was one of the more famous lovers of polydactyl cats, after being first given a six-toed cat by a ship's captain. Upon Hemingway's death in 1961, his former home in Key West, Florida, became a museum and a home for his cats, and it currently houses approximately fifty descendants of his cats (about half of which are polydactyl).
