Cars on Beals street

In 1914, the Kennedy home was the last house on tree-lined Beals Street. While houses later occupied the fields around the Kennedy’s property, many of the trees that lined Beals Street during Jack Kennedy’s childhood -including the tree in front of the house- have soared to a height of 75 feet.
