Bob Vila Co-chairs Foundation Restoring Hemingway's Cuban House
The digitization of Ernest Hemingway's personal papers made the front page news at The New York Times on February 10, 2014. Although Hemingway's home, named Finca Vigía (or Lookout Farm), was gifted to the Cuban people after Hemingway's death, the rescue of these historical documents, as well as the preservation of the home, was made possible largely thanks to the Finca Vigía Foundation, an American nonprofit co-chaired by Bob Vila.
As an expert in the restoration of historical homes and as a Cuban-American, it's no question that Bob Vila has dedicated himself to the Foundation's work. Read more about Bob's restoration work in Cuba here.
