The George W. Bourne House, also known as the "Wedding Cake House" in Kennebunk was built between 1826 and 1829. The elaborate "icing-like" trim was added to the home in 1855, dating this daguerreotype during or just after that year. The cased dimage shows the house, the barn and an ornate fence.Show Details
