Kennedy Compound to Be Converted to Museum

The Kennedy compound in Hyannis, Mass. will be converted into an educational center and museum as a tribute to the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, FOX News learned Thursday.

The compound is also known as the Hyannis Port Historic District, which covers six acres of waterfront property along Nantucket Sound. The property includes the homes of family patriarch Joseph P. Kennedy and two of his sons, Robert and John.

Kennedy succumbed to brain cancer at the compound Tuesday night and the family held a private Mass for the senator Thursday morning.
