John F. Kennedy National Historic Site, 83 Beals Street, Brookline, MA 02446
This was the first house the parents of the President, Joseph P. and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, had lived in together, and it represents the social and political beginnings of one of the most prominent families of the nation. In the year 1966, after the death of President Kennedy, the family purchased the house as a memorial and restored it under the attendance of Rose Kennedy’s "aim and hope to give this home to the American people as a present, so that future generations can visit it…and get a better understanding of the history of this wonderful country."
In order to capture and save the memories of Mrs. Kennedy of that age, the National Park Service has produced an audiotape tour of the birthplace, in which the President’s mother describes the family life and tells personal anecdotes, conveying the spirit and the mood of this place. This taped description is a popular aspect of the commented tour and has been translated into several languages.
The John F. Kennedy National Historic Site is administrated by the National Park Service in the United States Department of the Interior.
