Film featuring UNCG Faculty Member Bob Hansen to be Screened March 2

Saving the Hansen House is the story of UNCG Professor and Associate Dean Bob Hansen who buys a dilapidated 18th-century farmhouse in Bethania, a small North Carolina town near Winston-Salem.

Originally he planned to restore it and then maybe sell it and move on. But the house turns out to be something special, and the town is even more special. Before he knows it, he is putting down roots.

This one-hour documentary film chronicles the unique challenges and rewards of saving a 250-year-old house. Or, as the filmmakers Deni and Will McIntyre put it, a house that might save him.

The film will be screened at the Greensboro Historical Museum on Friday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m. The Friends of the UNCG Libraries and the Center for Creative Writing in the Arts at UNCG to sponsor the screening in collaboration with the Greensboro Historical Museum. Admission is free. Both Hansen and the McIntyres will be present for a post-screening discussion of the film.
