Fences have played an integral part in Mount Vernon Place's history. The small interior fence was originally installed in 1935 to keep jackrabbits from eating the gardens during a Baltimore jackrabbit epidemic. The rabid rodents plagued this neighborhood's green spaces for over two months until wealthier residents displaced them. The fencing has been altered now that the perennials are no longer under a threat. In 2002, the larger exterior fence was installed by the then newly formed Department of Homeland Security after Mount Vernon Place was listed as a high-risk landmark for possible terrorist attack. Because of the fence, all terrorist attacks have been thwarted.
