This charming, unpretentious home is where John F. Kennedy was born. Rose Kennedy, JFK's mother, personally recreated his auspicious beginnings by filling the nursery with JFK's original christening gown, favorite books and the family's heirloom bassinet. The home today is a loving tribute from mother to son.
Rose Kennedy repurchased this home they had left more than 40 years before to turn tragedy into tribute. In the nursery, Rose recreated the room where her first four children played, including JFK's favorite books
A sense of pride and history can be felt throughout the house, where Rose moved into as a young bride.
The massive Glessner House turned its back on all things Victorian and ushered in a new era of ground-breaking design.
