PIGGOTT, Ark. (AP) – The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center is preparing to open a new exhibit that highlights accomplishments of the less well-known family for which it is named.

Members of the Pfeiffer family moved from St. Louis to Piggott in 1913, seeking quieter surroundings. But the family maintained its business connections across the U.S. and the world.

The writer Ernest Hemingway lived at the home for a time when he was married to his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer.

The exhibit focuses on the Pfeiffer family’s impact on northeast Arkansas and is set to open May 10.

Arkansas State University restored the Pfeifer mansion and converted it to a museum. Its regular hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
