Dedicated on July 8, 1966 by the citizens of Barnstable to commemorate their fallen neighbor, the memorial features a granite wall with two bronze sculptures overlooking a reflecting pool and the sea he loved to sail. The president’s profile medallion adorns the stone wall facing the sea and a presidential seal medallion faces Ocean Street.

In 2022, the daughter of sculptor Bruce Hoheb (who had a role in creating the memorial), Ms Hoheb, presented the seal’s original fiberglass mold with a bronze patina to the town and the memorial committee. The JFK Hyannis Museum serves as the seal’s steward and displays it for all to appreciate!
