Midland, Texas

This was the home of George H W & Barbara Bush in Midland, TX. The kitchen is cute and brought back lots of memories from the 50's. They tried to recreate it from pictures that they had of the house.

Barbara Bush was very happy with these curtains as they were very close to what she had made back in the 50's. You can see into the sun porch.

The wood is beautiful, but had been sheet-rocked over and painted. They spent like a half million dollars restoring it to this knotty pine. This wood was in W's bedroom, too. They had his Boy Scout & Roy Roger's Rider Club uniforms on the bed.

It is a 3 bedroom, one bath home with a sun porch and built in 1939.

The home has been restored to the original color and as close to when the Bushes lived there. They bought it in 1951 for $9,000.
