ST. JOHNSBURY (AP) — A folk art gallery and park devoted to colorful depictions of dogs has reopened in St. Johnsbury more than two weeks after the suicide of owner Gwen Huneck.
Huneck’s husband, Dog Mountain founder Stephen Huneck, committed suicide in January 2010.
Despite those losses, other staff members at Dog Mountain say they’ll try to keep the business going. The 150-acre site includes an art gallery displaying Stephen Huneck’s dog-themed furniture, prints, jewelry and other items, hiking trails, a swimming pond and the famous Dog Chapel.
Dog Mountain has become a popular tourist attraction in St. Johnsbury, and has been featured on national television programs including Oprah and Good Morning America.
