John F. Kennedy NHS preserves the birthplace of America's 35th president. In 1967, the president's mother returned here, where Kennedy spent his boyhood, and restored the house to her recollection of its 1917 appearance. Each year, thousands of visitors join NPS staff to share Mrs. Kennedy's memories in a tour of the house and neighborhood that, in her words, hold "many happy memories."
