Fans of Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald can now stay in the famous literary couple’s former house in Montgomery, Alabama. The house also functions as the only museum dedicated solely to the Fitzgeralds in the world. The organization has turned a two-bedroom apartment into a space with modern amenities.
Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald lived in this house from 1931 until 1932 and wrote major portions of Save me the Waltz and Tender is the Night during their time here. Their nomadic lifestyle meant that they rarely stayed in one place for long periods of time. F. Scott Fitzgerald, perhaps best known for writing The Great Gatsby, and along with his wife was among the celebrities of the Jazz Age of the 1920s.
The Fitzgeralds in Montgomery
The house in Montgomery, Alabama is also near the neighborhood where Zelda grew up and is in one of the city’s oldest areas, Cloverdale. Little has changed here since it was founded in 1892. It is full of unique houses, green spaces, and magnolia trees.
After the Fitzgeralds moved out, the house was split into four apartments, one of which has been converted for the use of visitors. Today, the rest of the house functions as the F. Scott & Zelda Museum, dedicated to their lives and legacy, which is open to the public.
Located on the second floor of the house, the apartment features a private living room, dining room, porch, kitchen, and two bedrooms. It also offers gorgeous views of the front lawn and surrounding quaint neighborhoods. Guests will also receive free access and complimentary tours of the museum downstairs.
