Hyannis Kennedy Legacy Trail

1. The Kennedys and Cape Cod

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 where you are standing, it served as a getaway for the Kennedys, including U.S. President John F. Kennedy, U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and U.S. Senator Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy. The JFK Hyannis Museum, behind you, is a multi-media exhibit designed to open a window on the days JFK spent on Cape Cod, and features over 80 photographs spanning the years 1934–1963.
