John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum

Columbia Point, Dorchester

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is dedicated to the memory of our nation's thirty-fifth president. A descendant of Irish famine immigrant families -- the Kennedys and the Fitzgeralds -- who fled to Boston in the 1840s, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the first Irish Catholic president of the United States. He represented for Irish-Americans a vindication of their long and difficult struggle to gain acceptance and success in Boston. Located on a ten acre park overlooking Dorchester Bay, the JFK is one of twelve presidential libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration.
