Did you know that the “First Families Museum” which is located in the Kennebunkport Historical Society’s Nott House has a current display of President Bush 41, 90th Birthday memorabilia, including the jump suit he wore while making his historic parachute jump at the age of 90? I personally am awed by the small sculpture of clasped hands made from metal from the “twin tower” wreckage. There are many more items worth seeing as well as the CNN documentary “Bush 41”. The Bush Gallery is just one part of what visitors experience when they tour the historic Nott House or “White Columns” as the house is affectionately known by locals because of its imposing “Greek Revival” columns which grace the front and side of the building. The tour of the home gives understanding of the family that lived in the house and tells how their lives impacted and blended into the rich and vibrant history of Kennebunkport. For those who love gift shops, there also is an excellent gift shop with many special items not found elsewhere in the Port! The Captain Lord Mansion staff can assist in guiding you to this excellent museum.
