The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza Dallas Texas

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas is a museum that commemorates the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. The museum is based on the 6th floor of the former Texas School Book Depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy from a sniper's perch. Located near the historic Dealey Plaza and overlooking Elm Street, the site where JFK was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald, this wrenching museum chronicling his death also explores his life and presidency. Audio tours cover both—as well as details of how Kennedy was killed—and utilize first-person accounts from those who were there. Exhibits include oral histories, rare film footage and audio recordings, photographs and artifacts. Dallas-Museum

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza was opened in 1989 in an early 20th-century former warehouse building at 411 Elm Street in the West End Historic District of downtown Dallas. The museum is located on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository building from which Lee Harvey Oswald, according to four government investigations, shot and killed John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, as his motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza below. It is open seven days a week except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. The museum is self-sufficient in funding, relying solely on donations and ticket sales. It rents the space from the County of Dallas; the city owns the building and land and deeded it to the county before opening today's museum. Since 2004 it has operated as a non-profit organization under an agreement with its parent organization National Historic Site Foundation Inc. (formerly known as The Dallas County Historical Foundation), where all revenues are used for Museum operations or diversified investments that support Museum operations with no funds donated to other organizations or entities. Over 1 million visitors have visited since its earliest established date of July 1, 1989.

Texas School Book Depository

The Texas School Book Depository building is the most iconic site at Dealey Plaza. You can still see the building today, but you won’t find it under this name anymore. It is now called the Dallas County Administration Building, a boring bureaucratic name for a place with such an infamous history. This building was where Lee Harvey Oswald fired the shots that killed John F. Kennedy from its sixth floor window, which has since been blocked off and converted into a museum. It is one of America’s most prominent landmarks and one of Dallas’s best attractions, even if it might not always be viewed as such due to its dark history.

Texas State Historical Association

The Texas State Historical Association (TSHA) is the oldest state historical society in Texas and one of the largest regional historical societies in the United States. Founded in 1897, it publishes The Southwestern Historical Quarterly and other literature about history. TSHA also provides support for various other educational sources including Handbook of Texas Online, which contains articles on most cities, counties and people in the state's past. The organization was founded as an offshoot of another historical association which had formed during the first decade after statehood. One of its members suggested that a branch be established at Denton where the College of Industrial Arts (now part of Texas Woman's University) had opened a year earlier. A small group met on October 6, 1897 to begin organizing such an association based upon similar groups already existing in states like Georgia and Mississippi. Dr. Ephraim Douglass Adams was elected president; Professor W.B. Oliver first vice president; Miss Sallie Haynie second vice president; Mrs. Retta Matthews third vice president; Mrs. Mary Jernigan fourth vice president; Dr. Cephas Aarons fifth vice president; Librarian Mouzon Taylor secretary-treasurer; Revs Hosea Garrett and WJ Black assistant secretaries, Miss Lou Carpenter librarian; Miss Nettie Robinson assistant librarian, Professor TU Taylor historian-editor-executive secretary, Drs William McCoy and WF Morrison historians; Miss Nettie M Thornton custodian Dallas-City-Buildings Are you traveling with a large group?

Lee Harvey Oswald

Lee Harvey Oswald was the 24 year-old assassin who murdered President Kennedy. He worked as a Marine in Japan and defected to the Soviet Union when he was 19 years old. He returned to the United States with his Russian wife in 1962 after living in Minsk for three years, where he worked at a radio factory and learned to speak Russian fluently.

John F. Kennedy

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated on November 22, 1963 at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time in Dallas, Texas while riding in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza. The President was fatally shot by Lee Harvey Oswald from a sixth floor window of the Texas School Book Depository building as his motorcade passed by. He was pronounced dead at Parkland Memorial Hospital 30 minutes later. John F. Kennedy is remembered as one of America’s most popular and charismatic presidents who understood the importance of national pride and respect and who ushered in an era of idealism that celebrated the peaceful progress made towards achieving freedom for all Americans during his short time in office (The Sixth Floor Museum).
