Lyndon B. Johnson - 35th President of the United States
John F. Kennedy National Historic Site preserves and interprets the birthplace in 1917 and boyhood home of the 35th President of the United States. The modest frame house at 83 Beals Street, Brookline, was also the first home shared by the president’s father and mother, Joseph P. and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, and represents the social and political beginnings of one of the world’s most prominent families. Shortly after President Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, his family repurchased the birthplace and restored it as a memorial to him under the close supervision of Rose Kennedy. John F. Kennedy National Historic Site was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1965 and established as an area of the National Park Service in 1969. The restored nine-room presidential birthplace includes a collection of household furnishings, photographs, and significant mementos personally collected and arranged by the president’s mother. Many pieces in the museum collection are original to the 1914-1921 period, and reflect the lifestyle, various pursuits and interests of the Kennedy family. A taped narrative produced by Rose Kennedy in her own words provides a unique and evocative addition to the ranger-guided tour.

Boyhood Home, Brookline, Massachusetts
In 1921, Joseph and Rose Kennedy moved the family to this larger home at the corner of Abbottsford and Naples Roads in Brookline. Three more of the Kennedy children were born here: Eunice, Patricia and Robert. This house is a three-story shingled frame house that has a wraparound porch with columns and dentils and two brick chimneys. While living here, Joseph Kennedy started to build the family fortune. While living here, John and his older brother, Joseph Jr., first attended The Edward Devotion School, a public school, and then the Lower Noble and Greenough School, which later became the Dexter School, a private, non-sectarian school. In 1927, the Kennedys moved from this house to the Riverdale section of the Bronx in New York City. Today, this house is privately owned.
