Entergy Donation of Governor Hunt House 12/17/19

VERNON, VT. – Entergy Corporation announced today it is donating the 18th-century Governor Hunt House to the Friends of Vernon Center, a non-profit organization formed to revitalize the Town of Vernon. “Entergy is fulfilling the commitments it made to the community following the closure of the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station. Vernon has always been a strong supporter of VY and home to many VY employees. We’re delighted to see this historic building put to good use by the community,” said Entergy Government Affairs Director Joe Lynch. “Vernon is delighted to receive from Entergy the donation of the Governor Hunt House, a prominent part or our town's history, as well as a great place to establish a community center. We hope the house will form one of the anchors of a new village center for Vernon, which the Friends of Vernon Center is working to create,” said Friends of Vernon Center President Arthur Miller. The donation includes two vacant lots adjacent to the building. The Friends of Vernon Center will own and operate the Governor Hunt House, on behalf of the Vernon community, as a community center in which many activities can take place. This is part of the larger mission of FVC, which is to envision, plan and promote the establishment of a village center in the Town of Vernon, Vt., for the benefit of the town’s residents and visitors. Entergy acquired the house in 2002 when Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee, LLC purchased the adjacent Vermont Yankee plant from Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corp. Vermont Yankee ceased producing power in December, 2014 and was sold in January 2019 to NorthStar Group Services for decommissioning. Under the terms of the sale to NorthStar, Entergy retained ownership of the Governor Hunt House.
