Pioneer Press: Another chapter added to story of birthplace

Larry Millett tells the story of F. Scott Fitzgerald's birthplace in St. Paul:
It was, instead, an unremarkable apartment in one of two identical buildings built side by side in an upscale but not quite posh neighborhood a few blocks away from the gold coast of Summit Avenue.

Yet like all historic buildings, the apartment has its own story to tell. It's a tale of modest beginnings, years of decline and decay, near demolition and finally, in the 1970s, rejuvenation.
