Virtual Historic Site Visit: John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site Presents "From Beals St. To The White House"

Throughout March, you can visit significant historic sites in Massachusetts virtually, courtesy of the Tewksbury Public Library's collaboration with select National Park Service units in Massachusetts.

Enjoy a virtual lunchtime lecture from the John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site, entitled "From Beals Street to the White House." Receive a virtual tour of John F. Kennedy's birthplace home on 83 Beals Street, as well as an exploration of his boyhood neighborhood, including the second home in which the Kennedys lived, their family church, and the school where a young John F. Kennedy received some of his earliest education. Learn how his mother -- Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy -- managed a large family, discover collection items such as John F. Kennedy's favorite childhood books, and explore the influences that shaped him as a child. Led by Lead Park Ranger Gabriella Hornbeck.
