KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine | George H.W. Bush found peace, friendship in Maine
KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine— Former President George H.W. Bush was known for his jogs along the rocky Maine coast, playing fast-paced golf, fishing in his speedboat and transforming his home in this seaside village into the “Summer White House.” He also built lasting friendships in the town that he’d visited since he was a boy.
Bush, who died Friday at age 94, goes way back in Kennebunkport.
The three-story, stone-and-shingle home at Walker’s Point has been in the family since the turn of the century, and the former president spent every summer there since boyhood except when he served as a Navy aviator in World War II.
