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.

The Kennedy kitchen.

Like many middle-class families in Brookline, the Kennedy’s relied upon the many contributions of live-in domestic help. Mary O’Donaghue and Alice Michelan, two first-generation Americans, cooked, cleaned and cared for the children, enabling the family to live their version of the American dream.
