In Memoriam: George H. W. Bush, of Walker’s Point, 1924–2018

In 2015, Down East conducted the following written interview with then 91-year-old George H. W. Bush, discussing the former president’s love of Maine and the role that the family’s Kennebunkport home at Walker’s Point has played in the Bushes’ public and private lives. The interview never ran in the magazine. We present it here, alongside photographs of the Bushes at Walker’s Point, courtesy of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum.
