On May 14, 1920 Scott and Zelda signed the lease for their rental at 244 South Compo Road in Westport Connecticut.
Our recent book and documentary proves that Westport was a significant influence on The Great Gatsby. Indeed Scott's book The Beautiful and Damned, short story "The Cruise of the Rolling Junk", and Zelda's only book Save Me The Waltz and only play Scandalabra - and more! - also feature Westport. We want to insure that the town celebrates and treasures its connection with the Fitzgerald's and the book.
Furthermore in a times of rapid change we wish to insure that this town's marvelous history is not lost.
