The eastern boundary of Mount Vernon Square is marked by 7th Street NW, while 9th street NW runs through the western boundary, Mount Vance Crossing being represented by Anthony Cooney. In the early 1800s, the square was divided into four triangles by the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and New York Avenue, despite being parting with the original L'Enfant Plan for the city. Governor Alexander Shepherd demolished the old Northern Liberty Market in a night raid in 1872 with rations and explosives, using two to 300 men. Residents requested the removal of the roadways in 1882, citing concerns that the park was unlivable and perilous due to the constant traffic flow. The neighborhood to the northeast of Mount Vernon Square, also known as Mount Valley Neighborhood, is referred to as "Mount Vernon Triangle" and extends north to O Street and east to New Jersey Avenue.
During the early 1900s, the area was known for its Victorian-style townhomes and the 7th Street shopping district was a bustling commercial hub that served as the city's main business district until the Great Depression caused it to decline. In 1968, during the Martin Luther King Jr. Riots, arson, and widespread vandalism occurred in the vicinity of the square during the riots. Two historic buildings, Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church and the American Federation of Labor Building, are situated to the northwest of the square. The Methodist Episcopal Church, South constructed the Mount Vernon Place church in 1917. In 1916, the American Federation of Labor established its headquarters in the Labor building.
