Oak Park Museum to Close Doors, Plans to Open Writing Center

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park intends to close the Hemingway museum by the end of 2017.  According to John Berry, some of the contents from the museum will hopefully be digitized while others might be available for viewing at locations such as the Oak Park Public Library.  The foundation will now begin fundraising for a new project: the construction of a $1 million writing center at Hemingway's birthplace home.
