John F. Kennedy National Historic Site

John F. Kennedy National Historic Site

John Fitzgerald Kennedy NHS, managed by the National Park Service, preserves the birthplace (1917) and boyhood home of the 35th President of the United States. The modest house was the first home shared by the president’s father and mother, Joseph and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy: John, the second of their nine children, spent his formative years in Brookline as his family began its rise to national prominence. In 1967 Rose Kennedy returned to 83 Beals Street to commemorate President Kennedy’s life, restoring the birthplace to her recollection of its 1917 appearance.
