Mission:
The Friends of LeDuc and Historic Hastings preserve, interpret and promote the distinctive history of the LeDuc Estate and Hastings community.  We identify and encourage access to historical resources and knowledge, sponsor programs and events, raise funds, volunteer, and collaborate with like-minded organizations.  We believe that preserving the historic fabric of our community enhances its identity for current and future generations.
