March 14, 1967: President Kennedy’s Arlington Gravesite is Moved
The permanent site replaced a temporary grave and eternal flame used during President Kennedy’s funeral on November 25, 1963. The site was designed by architect John Carl Warnecke, a long-time friend of President Kennedy’s. The president’s casket was moved to the new location along with two of his children (Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, who died two days after his birth in 1963, and an unnamed stillborn daughter born in 1958) on March 14th and then consecrated and opened to the public on March 15, 1967.
