If you ask any of the older captains in Key West they will also refer to the remains of this thing as the House on Stilts, but the story I heard was that it was blown over in a hurricane and that it was actually a private house for some time. And I doubt that ernest ever wrote there.

Lea's book says things that I don't think other people have ever said, but his section on Bimini is good.

My original source for data on the Pilot House structure is here:

http://www.uscg.mil/hq/g-cp/history/WEBLIGHTHOUSES/LHFL.html 

 

After a bit more searching on the Web, I turned up a couple of additional sites with info about the structure.  At least one of them seems to confirm that the old Northwest Passage lighthouse was "house on stilts" said to have been used by Hemingway.  I still believe it very unlikely that Ernest wrote there but I plan to research this legend further.

Check out these links:
