The city of Fort Worth is expected to break ground on the JFK Memorial on Monday. The plaza will include a bronze statue of the slain president.

The memorial will be constructed on General Worth Square, which is across the street from the Fort Worth Hilton, formerly the Hotel Texas, where President Kennedy and his wife spent their final night together.

The following morning, Kennedy gave an impromptu speech to thousands in the square before heading to Dallas where he was assassinated as his motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza.
