THE 6th FLOOR...
53 years ago today, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated here in Dallas while driving through Dealey Plaza, in the West End district of downtown. A very sad day for America. Far worse than this recent election. Nonetheless, the country moved forward and so did Dallas. Back in the mid 70s, my father D.C. Broadstone was a young architect and worked for a firm that was hired to renovate the infamous School Book Depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald purportedly shot JFK from a 6th floor window.
My dad had access to the 6th floor and was able to acquire these original artifacts: an elevator button from the 6th floor and an old book crate that was there.
The School Book Depository was renovated into a county court house and eventually the 6th floor was turned into a museum.

The most sensible and plausible theory I've heard yet.
