2. An additional marker on the press coverage prior to the inauguration of President Kennedy
This marker is directly above the Stephen Bloomer Balch marker. It reads: In the cold winter of 1960-1961 this house had an important role in history. From it was flashed to the world news of pre-inaugural announcements by President John F. Kennedy. Presented by the grateful newsmen who were given warm haven here by Miss Helen Montgomery and her father, Charles Montgomery.

The Kennedys lived in a home directly across the street at 3307 N Street, so this made an ideal location for press coverage at the time up to his inauguration.
