Rosemary Kennedy's 100th Birthday

Rose Kennedy with her children (L-R) Joe Jr., Rosemary, and John.
On Thursday, Septmber 13, 2018, we will celebrate Rosemary Kennedy’s 100th birthday at the house where she, and her brother John, was born. Rosemary was her parent’s first daughter and born with intellectual disabilities. Helping Rosemary, and others like her, became a longstanding mission of the Kennedy family that continues today.

Thirty minute guided tours of the birthplace will be offered on the hour and half hour starting at 10:00 a.m. and the last departs at 3:30 p.m. Should you prefer a self-guided option, please visit during one of our Open Houses from 12:00-1:00 or 4:00-5:00. Throughout the day, the film "Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy: A Life to Remember" will be shown.

At 3:00 p.m., author Kate Clifford Larson will provide a backyard talk about her book, Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter. Refreshments will be available. We hope you can join us to celebrate!
