Inscription.  
Main Street, Hyannis in the 1960s was filled with activity. Shops were bustling, and supporters of John F. Kennedy, running for president, lined the streets. Since JFK based much of his campaigning out of the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port, journalists covering the campaign stayed in Main Street hotels, and downtown area was filled with activity and commerce. The photographs of the Kennedys on the Sturgis Charter Public School across the street, pay tribute to the family’s legacy in Hyannis Port. For more information on the photographs, dial the phone number below.
