Maine Final Stop on Couple’s Capitol Tour

AUGUSTA, Maine — A Texas couple has fulfilled a lifelong dream by visiting Maine to watch the state Legislature at work. Seriously.

86-year-old Marcine Webb and his wife, 81-year-old Nita Lou Webb, were in Augusta last week to complete their quest to visit every state capitol. Maine’s was the last one.

When House Speaker Mark Eves announced the reason for their visit, the state representatives stood and cheered.

The trip for the San Angelo, Texas, couple was a 65th wedding anniversary present from their children. They will reach the milestone in August.

They visited No. 49, Juneau, Alaska, five year ago, but then stopped traveling because of Marcine Webb’s poor health. He’s been feeling better lately.

Nita Lou Webb says the people of Maine are “honest and caring.”
