John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site takes visitors back in time to experience the roots of one of the nation's most prolific leaders in Presidential history.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site preserves the birthplace of America's 35th president. When the Kennedy family donated the house at 83 Beals to the National Park Service as a gift to the American people in 1967, "the president's mother hoped that future generations would be able to visit and get a better appreciation of the history of this wonderful country." Today visitors can experience Mrs. Kennedy's recreation of these early years.
