DALLAS (KRLD) — The Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas has installed a live high definition webcam which allows viewers to see what alleged JFK-assassin Lee Harvey Oswald saw in 1963.

The webcame, installed by Earthcam, is in the southeast window on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository Building in Dallas.

“What the camera view shows is Elm Street, where the shooting occurred. And it shows a little part of Houston Street just to give people an understanding of the place,” said Longtime museum curator Gary Mack.

President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while traveling in his presidential motorcade on Elm Street, allegedly by Lee Harvey Oswald, who is believed to have fired the shots that also severely wounded Texas Governor John Connally.

Mack says the sniper’s area is glassed off to preserve the original site, but visitors can get a great view through the HD camera.

Several thousand people crowded Dealey Plaza on Nov. 22, 2013, to honor the former President on the 50th anniversary of his death.

The museum celebrated its 25th anniversary in February.
