Jessica Brosey and Ben Snider say the home was the scene of the 1951 dinner party orchestrated by journalist Charles Bartlett, his wife Martha Joseph Kennedy. Bartlett was renting the home at the time. The goal of the dinner party was to introduce the future president and the future first lady.

It was only two years after indulging in cocktails, chicken casserole and a game of charades, the couple married in Rhode Island.

Since then, the house has been expanded to include the property next door which was 3417 Q Street. The price is set at $1,725,000. It comes with three bedrooms and two and a half bathroom. Snider says it also comes with a garage that is extremely rare for the area.
