JFK's Ghost Allegedly Hangs Out In A Boston Seafood Joint
Apart from his various accomplishments during his tragically short-lived tenure, former U.S. President John F. Kennedy not only left his mark on the nation, but also on a specific Massachusetts restaurant. Supposedly, his love for marine dishes was so strong it often drove him to visit a Boston seafood joint, both in life and death.
Located on the historic Freedom Trail in Boston, MA, and serving food since 1826, the Union Oyster House is one of the oldest restaurants in the U.S. and is host to a multitude of classic seafood dishes. J.F.K. apparently enjoyed dining upstairs in private, and his frequent patronage eventually led to his preferred table being designated "The Kennedy Booth."
However, that's not the only lingering influence J.F.K. left on this establishment — as the story goes, J.F.K.'s ghost often appears in dining rooms to silently watch others eat, and has even been spotted in the restaurant bathroom. After his historic presidency, J.F.K’s legacy seems to live on right alongside his choice eatery.
