The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum would like to welcome everyone to come visit the our new exhibit – Cape Cod: The Heart and Home of the Kennedy Family. The exhibit provides a unique look at the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port.
The Kennedy house was originally purchased by Rose and Joe Kennedy in 1928 and was quickly expanded to meet the needs of the growing family. Over the years, the house became the focal point for the Kennedy family. Later, the adjacent houses were purchased by John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy to form what is known today as the Kennedy Compound.
In the days of JFK’s presidency, the Kennedy Compound was the site of important meetings with both national and foreign dignitaries.
The new exhibit, Cape Cod: The Heart and Home of the Kennedy Family, features a unique look at the The Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port, including photographs and fabric samples from the private collection of Mr. Robert Luddington. Mr. Luddington became the personal interior designer for the Kennedy’s in 1957.
The exhibit will be available for viewing by the public through the end of the year.
