Hunting Hemingway In Petoskey

Horton Creek, where a young Ernie Hemingway learned to fish

Every summer of his youth Ernest Hemingway traveled with his family from their home in the Chicago area to their cottage on Walloon Lake in Northern Michigan. Years later he wrote about some of his experiences and people he met in the Nick Adams Stories and other works.

You can tour many of those locations with Petoskey Yesterday, a company founded by two Hemingway experts, and attend the biennial Hemingway Society Conference in Petoskey June 17-22.

Read about visiting Hemingway haunts and find out more about the conference in my story at

Mike Federspiel (left) and Christopher Struble founded Petoskey Yesterday tours. Mike is now Executive Director of the Little Traverse Historical Society and Chris continues to operate the tours.
