Bob Dunning (1950-2007) was a preservation craftsman known for his work restoring historic houses and barns and creating fine furniture and carvings. He was also a devoted environmentalist who fully engaged in local politics, always trying to bring disparate points of view together. He was an outstanding parent who cared deeply about passing on an appreciation of craftsmanship and nature to all children. In short, Bob Dunning was a bridge within the community . . . so it’s fitting that we build a bridge in our community to honor him.
The fundraising campaign for the Bridge is now closed, but more information on the History of both the bridge, its builder, and Bob Dunning and his legacy may be found here:
