Tribute to the Duvenecks

by Caitlin Moyles

The Los Altos History Museum will pay tribute to local educators and philanthropists Josephine and Frank Duveneck with a commemorative movie night at the Bus Barn Stage Company Theater in Los Altos on Thursday, June 23.

The Duvenecks were the proprietors of Hidden Villa, a 1,600-acre farm and wilderness preserve in Los Altos Hills that they used for educational summer camps and organic food production.

Two short films will highlight the Duvenecks' lives and accomplishments and complement the museum's current exhibit, "Touching Lives: The Duvenecks of Hidden Villa," on display through Sunday, June 26.

The museum will kick off the evening by serving light refreshments during extended museum hours from 6 to 7:30 p.m., according to spokesperson Paula Tuerk. Attendees will then proceed to the Bus Barn Stage Company Theater for the film viewing at 7:30 p.m. The theater is located at 97 Hillview Ave., one block from the museum.

Both the extended museum hours and the films are free to the public.

The Los Altos History Museum is located at 51 South San Antonio Road. Call 650 948-9427 for more information.
