There was money to be made in the banking and investment business, even 100 years ago! Here are the fruits of that labor
On a strip of land, jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean in southern Maine near the town of Kennebunkport, is an estate. Originally called Walker's Point, it is now known as the Bush Compound. The property has been in the Bush Family for over 100 years, having been purchased by George H. Walker, an investment banker and financier, who just happens to be the grandfather of our 41st President. Bush41 considered Walker's Point to be the summer Whitehouse and spent vacations there as well as often hosting visits from national leaders such as Margaret Thatcher and Mikhail Gorbachev.
George W. Bush, our more recent President Bush often visits here with his family. The "bungalow" includes "9 bedrooms, 4 sitting rooms, an office, a den, a library, a dining room, a kitchen and various patios and decks, " according to Wikipedia. I managed to snap a few shots of the place while we were in that area.
The Secret Service housing....that must be tough duty now!
I think this is former President George Bush 41's boat.
