Inscription. On November 22, 1963, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, thirty-fifth President of the United States, visited Dallas. A Presidential parade traveled north on Houston Street to Elm Street and west on Elm Street. As the parade continued on Elm Street at 12:30 P.M., rifle shots wounded the President and Texas Governor John Connally.

Findings of the Warren Commission indicated that the rifle shots were fired from a sixth floor window near the southwest corner of the Texas School Book Depository Building, Elm and Houston, a block north of this marker.

President Kennedy expired at Parkland Memorial Hospital at 1:00 P.M. The John Fitzgerald Kennedy Memorial plaza is nearby, bounded by Main, Record, Market and Commerce Streets.
