Potter's Rooming House
In the fall of 1919, Ernest Hemingway decided to stay in Petoskey and work on writing stories. From October to December, he rented an upstairs bedroom from Mrs. Eva Potter, a widow living here with her children. It was in that bedroom that he worked hard--but with little success--at writing fiction.
This is a private residence and not open to the public.
