This bench was the famed make out spot of F Scott Fitzgerald, one of Mt. Vernon's most famous residents. The American author and playboy was known for bringing his dates here for a romantic rendezvous. Of course, this all happened after his wife, Zelda, was committed to an insane asylum. After this, the bench became notorious for lip-locked lovers visiting the park. Fitzgerald, the famous romantic author, was influenced by the Mount Vernon Place Methodist Church, which was built in the Gothic Revival style during the Romantic period.
