The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center in Piggott, Arkansas includes a barn-studio associated with Ernest Hemingway and the family home of his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer. Pauline's parents, Paul and Mary Pfeiffer, were prominent citizens of Northeast Arkansas and owned more than 60,000 acres of land. During the 1930s the barn was converted to a studio to give Hemingway privacy for writing while visiting Piggott. Portions of one of his most famous novels, A Farewell to Arms, and several short stories were written in this studio.

Both the home and the barn studio were named to the National Historic Register in 1982.  The properties have been renovated, focusing on the 1930s era.  Areas of emphasis for the museum and educational center include literature of the period, 1930s world events, agriculture and family lifestyles, family relationships and development of Northeast Arkansas during the Depression and New Deal eras. 

The mission of the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center is to contribute to the regional, national and global understanding of the 1920s and 1930s eras by focusing on the internationally connected Pfeiffer family of Piggott, Arkansas, and their son-in-law Ernest Hemingway.  This includes drawing on Hemingway's influence as a noted American author to foster interest in literature and promote excellence in the art of writing.
