The National Park Service will open John F. Kennedy's boyhood home in Massachusetts to tours on Nov. 25 to mark the 49th anniversary of the national day of mourning that followed his assassination.

The nine-room house at 83 Beals St. in Brookline is a national historic site where the 35th American president spent his early boyhood.

The town put a memorial in front of the residence following JFK's 1963 death.

The Kennedy family repurchased the home from other owners a few years later before gifting it to the National Park Service in 1969.

Tours from National Park rangers will include a look at Kennedy family furnishings, photographs and other mementos.

The historic site closes in the winter and reopens to the public next May.
