Photos & Multimedia

Our Photos and Multimedia section of our website features a virtual tour of the house and a photo gallery of events and education programs. You are invited to step back into 1917 via a virtual tour that includes historic photos, recent photos of the interior of the house, and a recorded audio tour by Mrs. Rose Kennedy. We hope the images in the photo gallery convey a sense of the range of activities that take place at the John F. Kennedy NHS.

In 1914, Joe and Rose Kennedy married and moved to 83 Beals Street where they spent six years and had four of nine children. In 1969, Rose Kennedy donated the house to the National Park Service as “a gift…to the American people.” Since then, more than 500,000 visitors have toured this modest home.
