Dallas chose to honor the memory of President Kennedy by erecting this stately monument. This 30-foot-high, 50-foot-square monument was built in 1970. The open-air structure in the historic West End resembles an ancient tomb. It is the first memorial by famed American architect and Kennedy family friend, Philip Johnson. The monument, built with the help of private donations from the citizens of Dallas, is open 24 hours daily and is lighted at night.

This cabin is actually a recreation of the actual one-room cabin built by Dallas founding father John Neely Bryan. John Neely Bryan Cabin stands alone, much like the original cabin must have stood on the plains of the fledgling city of Dallas.
