Dealey Plaza has always seemed a part of the JFK tragedy. However, the surrounding monuments originally were placed here to honor famous residents of Dallas. Its connection to President Kennedy came many years later.

The park is named after a former publisher of The Dallas Morning News, George Bannerman Dealey and was completed in 1940. Mr. Dealey was involved in local politics and did much to bring about the renewal of this area. (This information is borrowed from Wikipedia.com)

The park is well-kept and visited by many tourists following the JFK route. It was mild and sunny in Dallas, so it made for the perfect day to absorb everything related to this historic area.
