Revisit JFK’s assassination from the spot where it happened: the Grassy Knoll. Explore the historical and the haunted on our Dallas ghost tour.

Grassy Knoll | Dallas, TX | US Ghost Adventures

As far as places haunted by the past go, the Grassy Knoll in Dallas is probably one of the most well-known. Otherwise known as the Dealey Plaza, this unassuming area was the location of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. 

As one of the most notorious assassinations in history that shocked the world, JFK’s assassination has left its stain on history. Now, you can stand on the same road as Kennedy’s murder and revisit this historical and harrowing event.

A Public Assassination, An Unforgettable Legacy

Many visitors don’t even need to have visited Dallas before they recognize Dealey Plaza. The infamous shooting that ultimately killed the 35th President is one of the most documented of all time. Whether you have seen the gruesome footage yourself, you will almost certainly be able to identify the area.

Both photographic and video footage exists of the infamous moment where the fate of the USA changed forever. What had been a triumphant motorcade ride swiftly descended into chaos. The image of First Lady Jackie Kennedy desperately climbing from the back of the car is a haunting image seared into national memory. 

When you stand on the Grassy Knoll, you may experience a blend of emotions. Tour guides will walk you through that historical moment and all the desperation and fear that ensued since that fateful shot.

History Lives On

Standing at the spot of a murder is a unique experience. The uniqueness heightens tenfold when the murder victim was the President, and you know exactly how it all went down. From the Grassy Knoll, you can see precisely where Lee Harvey Oswald fired the deadly shot. It’s the sixth floor of what was once the Texas School Book Depository building.

On the road, a bright white X marks the spot where Kenned’s assassination occurred. No one could have predicted that this particular road would host his final moments, least of all him or his wife Jackie Kennedy, as their motorcade rode jubilantly before crowds of adoring supporters. The contrast between adoration and horror is still felt at the Grassy Knoll to this day, like echoing tremors from an earthquake.

Many visitors have stated that standing at this historic spot, especially beside the X, is a daunting experience. It forces you to confront the reality that none of us know what is coming next and that the unexpected is inevitable. That day’s sudden tension and anxiety feel near-palpable at the Grassy Knoll, providing historical intrigue that is both thrilling and sobering.
