Houses from Jack and Jackie Kennedy

3321 Dent Place NW

Hickory Hill
1147 Chain Bridge Road

Jackie Kennedy, wife of then-Senator John F. Kennedy, reads a bedtime story to daughter, Caroline, at the family home in Hyannisport, Massachusetts. Jackie Kennedy loved books and passed this joy on to her children. September 13, 1960


The Carlyle Hotel
Madison and 76th Streets
New York City, New York

Glen Ora
Middleburg, Virginia
(Leased by Kennedys)

Soon after the inauguration, Jackie made a conscious effort to establish a life for herself and her children that was independent of politics and the White House. She requested a house in the country where she could take Caroline and John. The family leased a house near Middleburg, Virginia, called Glen Ora, about an hour outside of Washington, D.C. On average, she and the children would spend two long weekends a month there. Although Jackie always looked glamorous and energetic during her public appearances, she was frail and vulnerable. Her long recovery from her difficult pregnancy and the stress of moving into the White House combined with the constant media scrutiny took its toll on her physically and emotionally. jacqueline-kennedy
