Historical Plaque Unveiled at The Fitzgerald Museum Christmas Party


By Heather VacLav

Saturday the F.Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum in Montgomery welcomed the public for its annual Christmas Party.
This year's holiday celebration was extra special because the home, which honors Reverend Julian and Eleanor McPhillips, unveiled a historic plaque dedicated in their names.
Back in 1986 their son and daughter- in-law, Leslie and Julian McPhillips, saved the Fitzgerald House from demolition.

Scott is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century with his most popular novel, The Great Gatsby.

"This house has attracted people from all over the world," said Julian McPhillips. "Now that the museum has been here, we're the only museum anywhere in the world with F. Scott Fitzgerald. Hemingway has a couple of museums but until we did this there was not any other museums."

The museum is the only remaining residence of the famous couple in Montgomery.
Holiday Hours: 
Saturday & Sunday 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. 
Wednesday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
