This was a great mix - an introduction to the one of the first families of Kennebunkport from the 1700's AND memorabilia from the First Family - George and Barbara Bush. Well worth a visit.

What makes this home significant is the furnishings are all original to the home. Other homes I've toured were restored and furnished with what could be foud of the period.
