The birthplace and childhood home of President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) in Brookline, MA. The house itself was purchased by Joseph P. Kennedy in 1914 and the family lived there until 1920, when the growth of the family motivated the Kennedys to move to a larger home just a few blocks away on the corner of Abbottsford and Naples. In 1966, the Kennedy family repurchased the home from its private owner, Mrs. Pollack. Between the years 1966-1969, Rose Kennedy restored the house to her recollection of its 1917 appearance, and donated the home to the American people in the form of the National Park Service in 1967 as a memorial to her son, the 35th president of the United States. Each year, thousands of visitors can take either a ranger guided tour or self guided tours through the house and neighborhood that, in Mrs. Kennedy's words, hold "many happy memories." #America #birthplace #Brookline #Coolidge #Corner #house #John #Kennedy #MA #President #USA
