Open House New York – Steinway Reformed Church
October 20 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
In the 1800s, William Steinway, the president of piano manufacturer Steinway & Sons, donated land for the Steinway Reformed Church.
The pipe organ from the legendary Steinway Hall was once installed in the sanctuary.
The church has always played an important role in the community. It was the original home of the Greater Astoria Historical Society in the 1980s.
This will be the first time this legendary church will participate in Open House New York weekend. The church sanctuary will be open between the hours of 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM on Saturday, October 12, 2019.
There will be ongoing tours and talks about the church, neighborhood, and Steinway legacy.
Between 2:00 and 4:00 PM will be talks by Bob Singleton, public tour guide at the legendary Steinway Factory. He will discuss the history of the community and company.
The program will feature rare images from the personal collection of the late Henry Z. Steinway, the last family member to run Steinway & Sons.
