Tribute to Pete Hansen (6/8/2024)

We are pleased to announce that a tribute to the late Peter A. Hansen, a former Director of the Lexington Group who passed away in May 2020, will take place at the new library in Winter Park, Florida, located at 1052 West Morse Blvd, on Saturday, June 8, 2024 beginning with refreshments in the Rotunda at 3:00pm. Here’s the rest of the schedule:

  • 3:30 pm – Opening welcome – Bonnie Hansen
  • 3:35 pm – Memorial film by Richard Luckin
  • 3:55 pm – Premiere of the PBS documentary film Railroad Stations in American Life
  • 5:20 pm – Q&A with Richard and Bonnie

“Railroad Stations in American Life” is Peter A. Hansen’s story of the origins of historic preservation laws in the US, the destruction of Pennsylvania Station in NY, and architecture’s sense-of-place in communities. It weaves Pete’s masterful script into a collection of recent interviews of the personal remembrances of train travelers and station lovers across the country. The film will be of interest to architectural historians and historic preservationists, as well as rail enthusiasts. It will be released to PBS nationwide. Produced by Kalmbach Publishing, with Emmy-nominated Director Richard Luckin and featuring Hollywood actor Michael Gross.

Members of the Lexington Group’s Board of Directors will be in attendance.

Please join us if you are in the area.
