John Fitzgerald Kennedy Memorial
The life of former United States President John Fitzgerald Kennedy ended too soon, in the city of Dallas on November 22, 1963. As the Presidential motorcade traveled through Dealey Plaza in the West End Historic District, assassin Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed the president. The John Fitzgerald Kennedy Memorial, a 30-foot high and 50-foot square concrete cenotaph, was erected in 1970 to honor his life.
Visitors to this open-air memorial will see a black granite slab in the center of the memorial, with the President's name inscribed in it with gold. It was designed by American architect, Philip Johnson and symbolizes the free spirit of John F. Kennedy. It remains unique, in that, the construction was funded by the residents of Dallas. While in Dallas, take time to visit the memorial any time day or night. During your stay in the city, rest comfortably as a guest of Best Western hotels.
