How the Property Got it's Name
Mr. d'Esterre (affectionately known as Dusty) died early in the 1970's and in his will he left two-fifths of his valuable waterfront property to the Town of Comox and the other three-fifths to two friends. The property could not be easily subdivided and as the Council had recently completed a Marina at the foot of the property they negotiated to purchase the balance of the property in order to develop a Marina Park.
There were two buildings, one an old frame house which was eventually torn down. It was too costly to bring it up to present day standards and to meet the requirements of the Fire Marshal and the Building Inspector. The other building is still standing and is known as "Dusty's Den".
