In 1969, a Kennedy family friend, Philip Johnson, constructed the John F.
Kennedy Memorial also located in Dallas.
This 50 foot square,
open-roofed, concrete-walled, monument resembles an open tomb.
Designed to the specifications expressed by former First Lady Jacquelyn Kennedy Onassis,
John F. Kennedy is inscribed on the black marble. It is not unusual to find flowers or notes placed here,
especially on November 22.
This memorial is located downtown on Main, Elm, and Market Streets.
