Event Description

The Kennedy's in Hyannis

In 1928, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy & Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. purchased their Hyannis Port summer home, now known as the Kennedy Compound. 

Located on the shore, less than three miles from Main Street Hyannis, it served as a getaway for the Kennedy family, including U.S. President John F. Kennedy, U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and U.S. Senator Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy. 

Because of the Kennedy Compound’s proximity to Main Street, many significant Kennedy events occurred in downtown Hyannis. The 1.6 mile Kennedy Legacy Trail explores the family’s rich history on Cape Cod, with stops at 10 important Kennedy sites in Hyannis. 

Brochures with a map of the sites can be downloaded at https://www.kennedylegacytrail.com

The self-guided walking tour begins at the JFK Hyannis Museum at 397 Main Street in Hyannis. Free Public Parking is available all along Main Street and at the large public lot at 28 North Street, Hyannis.  Park your car and bring your walking shoes, cameras, and smart phones!  Head to the JFK Hyannis Museum to pick up the brochure and walking trail map,
