Mission & Significance of the Park
The National Park Service is committed to preserving John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site, the birthplace and childhood home of the 35th president of the United States. It was here, in the first home shared by the future president's parents, that Joseph and Rose Kennedy cultivated and instilled in their son the family's principles, skills, aspirations, and ambitions.
