The city of Mount Vernon is something of an honor to the legendary soldier and president George Washington. His plantation home, set in Virginia, is from where this great city derives its name. Before becoming Mount Vernon, the Indian tribes of the region referred to the area as Epsewasson. In more modern days, circa 1960 and 1970, Mount Vernon became a place of separation, with Caucasians living to the north and the African-Americans living to the south, bringing to light modern cliches. Today, the city is less divided by the results of the history that is the city can still be seen and felt today.
