Hemingway's gate for sale on eBay

KEY WEST, Fla., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- A Florida charity is auctioning the original gate from Ernest Hemingway's Key West home on eBay.

The auction, which had a high bid of $2,877.99 with eight days left to go Thursday afternoon, states the gate was formerly a part of the brick wall built around the writer's home in 1935, which is now the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum.

The museum replaced the gate because it allowed cats to escape the property and the relic was donated to Helpline, a non-profit Key West phone line aimed at giving information and referrals to people in crisis.
