The main house at the Kennedy family’s famous waterfront compound on Cape Cod in Massachusetts has been donated for use as an education center aimed at teaching leadership and inspiring public service, the institute receiving the donation said on Monday..
The Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate said the house where the Kennedy family retreated from the public glare for decades was donated at the request of the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy and his widow, Victoria.
The donation fulfilled a promise Senator Kennedy made to his mother, Rose, that the family house — the largest of several structures in the compound — be preserved and used for charitable purposes, the institute said.
