The John F. Kennedy Memorial, located in Hyannis, overlooks Lewis Bay in a peaceful and reflective setting. The memorial was erected in 1966 by Barnstable residents to recognize and pay tribute to the late president -- and Cape Cod local. The memorial includes a plaque and fountain pool, and continues to be a place where locals and out-of-towners frequent to honor the Kennedy legacy.
