Governor Hunt House, Vernon

Governor Hunt House, Vernon

The southeastern town of Vernon lost its economic engine with the closing of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant in 2014. The Friends of Vernon Center, Inc. has been actively seeking ways to counter this, and a $50,000 grant for renovations to the c. 1779 Governor Hunt house will help. Leader Martin Langeveld states, “Transforming the Governor Hunt House into a community center will help to make Vernon a more attractive place to live, work and visit, thereby improving the economic environment of the town and continuing its recovery from the severe impacts of the shutdown of Vermont Yankee. The community center will also serve as a focal point for future village development in the area, which will attract new residents and new businesses.”
