Jackson Compound Vs. The Kennedy Compound

A Look At Two High Profile American Families

The Kennedys

The Kennedys and Jacksons are two high profile American families, who lived through years of success and turbulence. The Kennedys are known for politics and the Jacksons music. Almost as famous as the two families are their homes.

The Kennedy compound

The Kennedy compound is located in Hyannis Port, on Cape Cod in the U.S. state of Massachusetts, which is on the northeastern coast of America. The property is comprised of several homes and sits on 6 acres. It was built in 1904, with additional properties acquired and added to the space.

The Jacksons

The Jackson compound is located on the southwestern coast of America in Encino, which is a suburb of Los Angeles, California. The property almost rivals that of the famed Kennedys.

The Jackson compound

The Jackson home sits on 5 acres and contains 12 bedrooms and 26 bathrooms (they must shop at Costco buying their toilet paper in bulk).
