Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) on Wednesday said the historic, six-acre Kennedy family compound in Hyannis, Mass., won’t be converted into a museum or leaving the family’s hands anytime soon.
“Someday it might be part of the institute in Boston — the presidential library,” Kennedy said. “But for now, no.”
The waterfront property along Nantucket Sound was the home of Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy and his family, including President John F. Kennedy and Sens. Edward and Robert Kennedy (D-N.Y.). It was the headquarters for JFK’s 1960 presidential campaign. It is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and is a local Hyannis historic district.
