John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site

Kennedy NHS preserves the birthplace and boyhood home of the 35th president of the United States. Kennedy spent his formative years in Brookline, where his family began its rise to prominence. In 1967 the president's mother, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, returned to the house to commemorate his life, restoring the birthplace to her recollection of its 1917 appearance. Today National Park Service rangers present guided tours of the house and neighborhood.
