Inscription.

Built by the Chicago and West Michigan Railroad in 1892, this building later served as the Pere Marquette Railroad’s main station and Hemingway likely used it when traveling between Charlevoix and Petoskey. It became the Little Traverse History Museum in 1969, and houses a permanent exhibit and other materials related to the region’s history and Hemingway’s personal and literary connections here.
