Papa's Cuban Home To Be Saved

Thousands upon thousands of work to be saved.

Tools, hardware, electric fuse boxes, hurricane-proof windows, and a host of other necessities arrived in Havana from the US yesterday and will be used to repair Ernest Hemingway’s Cuban compound and to construct the first stage of an as yet unnamed conservation facility.

Head of the Finca Vigia museum Ada Rosa Alfonso told media, "Preserving Hemingway's legacy brings honor and dignity to North Americans and Cubans alike."

Papa’s home and all within it fell into disrepair during the over a half-century of Cold War between the U.S. and Cuba.

Hemingway left 5,000 photos, 10,000 letters and thousands of margin notes in the roughly 9,000 books at his home in Cuba, all of which will now be preserved.
