Heron House Walkway
Building a Pathway to our Future, Brick-by-Brick
One hundred years ago, our founders, Sam and Mary Middleton, created a school on the Corsica River dedicated to providing students with a learning experience enriched with a strong sense of values and community. Over the years, while the school’s outward appearance has changed, the mission has remained true and Gunston has grown, student-by-student. After an impressive capital campaign in 2012 to upgrade our academic facilities, Gunston turned its attention to its athletics facilities and in 2018, began transforming the long-held Headmaster’s house into a state of the art waterfront athletics center for all students.
To commemorate this event, the school is constructing the Heron House Walkway, where individual bricks will become a visible testimony to the school’s commitment to young people and to the community’s commitment to the school.
As a lasting way to support Gunston, we invite you to purchase a personalized commemorative brick that will become a part of Heron House Walkway. Bricks will be installed in the walkway at Heron House and as the years progress, they will serve as a permanent and enduring monument to those individuals whose lives have been touched by Gunston.
