The Wedding Cake House
The Wedding Cake House in Kennebunk Maine is said to be the most photographed house in the state of Maine. It's official name is The George W. Bourne House and it was built in 1825 by Bourne who was a shipbuilder. Bourne spent most of his life adding the the embellishments of this house and it's those embellishments that have given it the name Wedding Cake House. It's still a private residence but, it was opened to the public once back in 2005 as a fund raiser for Hurricane Katrina relief. I was only passing through Kennebunk back in the late 90's, but this house caught my eye and I had to turn around and go back to get a photo.
