JFK's boyhood home open for national day of mourning
The National Park Service is opening John F. Kennedy's boyhood home to the public Nov. 25, the 49th anniversary of the national day of mourning that followed the late president's 1963 assassination.
Kennedy, the 35th U.S. president, was shot to death Nov. 22, 1963, during a visit to Dallas.
Admission to the three-story, 1914 house in Brookline, Mass., is free, with guided tours offered from 9:30 a.m. until closing at 4 p.m. At 2 p.m., National Park Rangers will hold a short ceremony on the lawn.
Though the grounds of the home are open year-round, tours of the interior are typically closed from November until April.
