Kennebunkport is a town in York County, incorporated on July 5, 1653 as the town of Cape Porpoise. After the early white settlers were driven away by Indian raids, the community was reorganized under the name Arundel in 1718 in honor of the Earl of Arundel. In 1821 its name was changed to Kennebunk Port.
Nearly a century later, on April 1st, 1915, a new town was created from Kennebunk Port to be known as North Kennebunkport. Its name was changed in 1957 to Arundel. Thus, the new Arundel occupies a small portion of the town so named in 1719.
Cape Porpoise remains as a coastal village in the town, along with Goose Rocks Beach another seaside settlement.
In recent years Kennebunkport has become famous for visits by the two Presidents Bush - George H. W. (the father) and George W. (the son). The elder Bush has a summer residence in the community.
