Where JFK Spent His Last Night

Field review by the editors.

Fort Worth, Texas

In 2006 a historical marker was placed outside the entrance to the former Hotel Texas, identifying it as the place where President John F. Kennedy spent his last night on earth, November 21, 1963. He traveled to Dallas the next day and was assassinated. The marker replaced an older, smaller plaque that had been unveiled by Vice-President George HW Bush, on March 30, 1981 -- the same day that President Ronald Reagan was shot in front of a Washington, DC, hotel.
