Built in 1853, White Columns is the Kennebunkport Historical Society’s premier property. Owned and loved by the same family for 130 years, the Victorian-era home has retained its old-world charm and still contains the home’s original furnishings. Step back in time by taking a guided tour. Docents will lead you through seven rooms of the stately home and share stories about three generations of the Perkins-Nott family that lived, loved and lost in this magnificent Greek revival mansion. The tour includes a brief history of Kennebunkport, its shipbuilding and maritime traditions, and the important connection between the house and the family of Presidents H.W. and George W. Bush who have summered in Kennebunkport for generations.


Experience the history of Kennebunkport’s Dock Square. Enjoy a guided tour filled with the social, cultural, and architectural stories of the people who lived here. This 45-minute to 1-hour tour cover approximately 3/4 miles on uneven sidewalks with slight elevation. Please be mindful of this before reserving the tour. On our walking tour, guests get a first-hand look at the homes and streets of historic Kennebunkport. The narrative covers the architecture of the homes and stories of the families who built them.
