John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is tmost commonly referred to as the JFK Library and is located on Columbia Point in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood.

The building houses original papers and correspondence from the Kennedy Administration, along with special literary materials. These include published and unpublished books and papers by and about the literary great, Ernest Hemingway. The library and museum sit on a 10-acre park that overlooks the sea, an important area to JFK. Kennedy chose the land, which was next to the Harvard Graduate School of Business and faced the Charles River. There would be views across the river to Winthrop House, where Kennedy spent his upperclassman days. Unfortunately, Kennedy was assassinated prior to seeing the construction begin on the library.
