Kennebunkport is a town located in York County, Maine. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 3,720. It is perhaps best known as the location of the summer home of former president George H. W. Bush.
The town center located along the Kennebunk River, approximately one-half mile (1 km) from the mouth of the river on the ocean. Historically a fishing village, in recent decades the town has become a popular seaside tourist destination with a small district of souvenir shops, seafood restaurants, and bed and breakfasts. Its reputation as a upscale community comes from the numerous large seaside estates along Ocean Avenue and other coastal thoroughfares. The famous "Bush Compound" is located on Walkers Point, a peninsula visible from Ocean Avenue. Just outside Kennebunkport is the Seashore Trolley Museum.
