A Boston-area painting company has been awarded a $27,793 federal contract to paint the exterior of the birthplace of President John F. Kennedy in Brookline, MA.

The National Park Service awarded the contract to the Pauline Moore Painting Company, a woman-owned, painting and wallcovering small business in North Weymouth, MA.

Historic House

Built in 1909, the National Historic Site preserves the birthplace of the youngest elected president of the U.S. The 35th president spent the first four years of his life in the “modest,” three-story, wooden-frame home in the Boston suburb, according to the Park Service website.

 The Kennedy family donated the house to the National Park Service in 1969.

The Kennedy family donated the house to the Park Service in 1969 as a “gift to the American people,” the Park Service said.

Tours of the home are offered seasonally. A virtual tour of the home is available here

The Project

The project involves changing the existing green color to a gray shade, and the existing yellow to a lighter hue. Paint colors will be provided by the Park Service.

According to project details, one coat of an alkyd primer and two latex coats will be applied by brush to the exterior substrates. Spraying and rolling are specifically prohibited.

The exterior substrates include shingles/siding, horizontal and vertical trim, windows and glazing, gutters and downspouts, skylight (full glazing), exterior doors, front porch, columns and others.

Before paint application, the entire house is to be “scrubbed clean using environmentally safe (green) products,” the Park Service said. Carbide/metal scrapers and sandpaper are to be used manually; the use of electric sanders or wire brushes is prohibited.
