Papa's Upland Bird Hunt and Dinner
The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center in Piggott, Arkansas includes a barn studio associated with Ernest Hemingway abd the family home of his second wife Pauline Pfeiffer. Pauline's parents, Paul and Mary Pfeiffer, were prominent citizens of Northeast Arkansas and owned more than 60,000 acres of land. During the 1930's the barn was converted to a studio to give Hemingway privacy for writing while he was visiting Piggott. Portions of one of his most famous novels, "A Farewell to Arms," and several short stories were written in this studio. Both the home and the barn studio were named to the National Historic Register in 1982. The properties have been renovated, focusing on the 1930's era. Ernest Hemingway was an avid hunter, and he liked to stalk the area around Piggott and Northeast Arkansas hunting Quail and other birds. Partnering with Liberty Hill Outfitters, Papa's Upland Bird Hunt and Dinner celebrates Ernest Hemingway's Arkansas Hunting Legacy and is an annual fundraiser for the Museum and Educational Center. Come join us on February 17, 2018 for this annual event and hunt just like Papa did in the 1930's in Northeast Arkansas.
