The Casa Antigua

Type: 
Historical Site

Built in 1919, the Casa Antigua was once the Trev-Mor Hotel, which was home to Ernest Hemingway from 1928 to 1930 and is where he is said to have written A Farewell to Arms. Today, located between Eaton and Caroline streets, the Casa Antigua is home to the Pelican Poop Shoppe, a souvenir and antique store offering a variety of gifts and oddities such as art prints by Key West artists, tropical Christmas ornaments, and hand-beaded purses.

The Casa Antigua and the Pelican Poop Shoppe are open to the public. Visitors can tour the atrium at the Casa Antigua, which features a tropical garden with plants, flowers, and trees native to the Florida Keys.
