The Kennedy’s famous home within the Kennedy compound is being donated to the nonprofit institute that Ted Kennedy had set up to study the history of the U.S. Senate.

From what we can gather from the article, this is the main home within the compound. The other properties within the larger compound will remain within the family. The main building will be used for scholarly research and conferences, according to the article.

Kennedy’s late mother, Rose, apparently wanted it this way.
