The author Ernest Hemingway was a regular visitor of his in-laws, the Pfeiffers of Piggott, while he was married to their daughter Pauline.
One of his favorite pastimes during those trips to Northeast Arkansas was hunting quail on Crowley’s Ridge.
On Saturday, March 4, the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum will celebrate the author’s legacy with a bird hunt and dinner.
The hunt will begin at 8:30 a.m. at Liberty Hill Outfitters in Rector. Hunters will enjoy a half-day of continental-style bird hunting, followed by a quail dinner. The museum will offer free tours following the dinner.
The cost of the package is $500. Reservations can be made by contacting the museum at 870-598-3487 or HPMEC Director Dr. Adam Long at adamlong@AState.edu.
First National Bank-Piggott, Glaub Farm Management, Olympus Construction, and Piggott State Bank are sponsoring the event.
