Kennedy in 1963, and the surrounding area, including the infamous grassy knoll. Also known as the Dallas County Administration building. It was originally constructed in 1883 as the Southern Rock Island Plow Company, which was struck by lightining and rebuilt in 1901. The building now also houses the 6th Floor Museum.
