George W. Bush Gets a Special Lobster Roll Delivery From a Favorite Maine Spot
It is no surprise that the Bush family has a strong connection to the state of Maine, and has for decades. If you frequent Kennebunkport in the summer, the chances of you running into a member of the Bush family are quite high because of the Bush family compound.
According to Wikipedia, Walker's Estate (more commonly referred to as the Bush Family Compound) was purchased in the late 19th century jointly by Bush's great-grandfather David Davis Walker, and his son, St. Louis banker George Herbert "Bert" Walker. Both built mansions on the property in 1902. The estate has since remained in the Bush family.
Obviously after spending so much time in Maine over the years, the Bush's have established what eateries are their "go-to" spots. It seems like when it comes to "lobstah" rolls, they prefer The Clam Shack over any other.
