Who lives in the Kennedy compound now and where did Rose live up to her death?

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


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.
