To celebrate the centenary of John F. Kennedy’s birth on May 29, 2017, the Kennedy Center is revitalizing the very mission of the institution created to honor him. As a “living memorial” to Kennedy and inspired by the enduring ideals he championed – Courage, Freedom, Justice, Service, and Gratitude – the Center is re-envisioning itself as a place that explores, challenges, and reflects the contemporary spirit of America.”
Throughout 2017, the National Archives in Washington D.C. will feature programming in celebration of the 100th year of John F. Kennedy's birth. Commemorative events include special exhibit displays on the Peace Corps and the Space Program, family activities, plus teacher and student outreach. These programs are in addition to the offerings at the Kennedy Library and Museum, which is part of the National Archives. Join us on social media at #JFK100, @USNatArchives on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Bronxville will celebrate the centennial birthday of its hometown president, John F. Kennedy, with the dedication of a bronze plaque on the lawn of Village Hall. This historic marker is the first official recognition that Bronxville was home to President Kennedy and his family from 1929 to 1941, and gives a brief history of JFK’s involvement in the life of the village during that 12-year residency. Crownlands, the Kennedys’ home, no longer exists.
