DERBY - The Michael Dunn legacy is fully coming to life.
Dunn passed away unexpectedly in 2007 and surprised everyone with his bequest: a generous public gift to both Vermont and Canada.
Dunn owned more than 800 acres around Lake Memphremagog, with approximately 400 acres on each side of the border. He left the land to both governments if they decided to accept the gift, which both did.
Friday, a public celebration and dedication of the Eagle Point Wildlife Management Area at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge was held on the Dunn property.
