Ted Kennedy was the last Kennedy to live in the original Kennedy home on Marchant Avenue- It is reported (a request in Ted's will) that it be turned into a public/national museum upon his passing.

It was purchased in 1926 by Joseph Kennedy and lived in by his wife and family as their budding family grew. It is the largest and most impressive of the houses in the compound. In 1956, John F. Kennedy bought a house nearby on Irving Avenue and then Robert and Ethel bought a house adjacent to it. Thus, the Kennedy Compound was formed. There are also two guest houses in the compound. Ethel still lives in her and Robert's "cottage" and Caroline inherited JFK's cottage. She sold it to Ted some years ago, preferring to summer in her mother's remote home on Martha's Vineyard. Ted bought it so that it would be kept in the family. Other Kennedy's live within the neighborhood, but not in the compound. Max Kennedy recently sold his waterfront cottage in Hyannis Port after moving to California. It was on the market for about 6 million dollars, although he bought it for 1.2 million and made many improvements to it. Max is the son of Ethel and Robert Kennedy. Rose died in the compound at the age of 104. The Kennedy's also have homes in Boston and other places throughout New England.
