JFK's Brookline birthplace to open on anniversary of assassination

JFK's Brookline, MA home to open on eve of his assassination

JFK's Birthplace

The John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site will open on Sunday, Nov. 22, to remember the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy.
The Beals Street site, where the 35th president was born, closed for the season on Nov. 1, but will open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on the 46th anniversary of Kennedy’s death. Guided tours will be offered, and admission will be free.
National Park Service staff will hold a brief ceremony outside the house at noon. Site staff are interested in hearing from Brookline residents who attended a ceremony at the home on Nov. 25, 1963, the Monday following Kennedy’s assassination, and would be willing to share their memories of the day. Anyone interested can call 617-566-7937, or just visit the site on Nov. 22.
