Open House New York – Steinway Reformed Church
October 20 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Steinway Reformed Church was built on land donated by William Steinway, the president of piano manufacturer Steinway & Sons – the pipe organ from the legendary Steinway Hall was once installed in the sanctuary. The church played a key role in the community, and 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
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.
Brief church tours on the half hour starting 1:30, historic talks on the history of the Steinway legacy on the hour starting at 2:00 PM
Between 2:00 and 5:00 PM will be talks by Bob Singleton, public tour guide at the legendary Steinway Factory, on 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.
