In documenting the Hemingway House, Artifacts completed a Historic Structures Report (HSR) on the remarkably intact mid-century house. Through our documentation, we completed an in-depth historic and architectural evaluation of the building and the related landscape.
The building, constructed between 1952 and 1953, stands as a rare example of highly-intact mid-century architecture in the Sun Valley resort area. This project afforded Artifacts the opportunity to not only research a unique and fascinating mid-century house, but also its connection to one of the nation’s most well-known authors. Our work provided the owners with a detailed catalog of the building’s key character-defining spaces and features and recommendations for planning and future modifications.
Hemingway’s wife, Mary, bequeathed the house and surrounding property to The Nature Conservancy in 1986. The Nature Conservancy continues to own and maintain the property.
