    Cathy Rogers of Windham, Maine, pays her respects at a makeshift memorial for President George H. W. Bush across from Walker's Point, the Bush's summer home, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, in Kennebunkport, Maine. Bush died at the age of 94 on Friday, about eight months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush.

    The former first couple's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are expected to continue to enjoy stunning views, fishing, golfing and swimming each summer at their oceanfront home in Kennebunkport.

    Family friend Evelyn Paine says the house "will always stay in the family.''

    The Walker's Point property became known as the "Summer White House'' when Bush was president, elevating the sleepy coastal community's status and making it a household name thanks to high-profile visits by world leaders, political protests and swarming journalists.
