Save the Steinway Mansion: Exhibit & Campaign

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The old Steinway family mansion is on the market for $18 million. It could end up being bought by a private individual. Or maybe there's a way to turn it into a museum or Astoria cultural/community center.

(Want to see what it looks like? It's apparently super-awesome.

The preservation/community center route is where the Greater Astoria Historical Society is trying to go. Come learn about (and support) their efforts at this meeting they're holding. Here is info from the historical society:

"We have scheduled a advance kickoff for the community of our Friends of Steinway Mansion campaign at the historical society on Monday, May 6, at 7:00 p.m. We will give historical background of the Steinway family, the piano company, and the mansion. We will show images never seen by the public from the late Henry Z. Steinway collection as well as a rather through study of the inside of the mansion done by Astoria photographer Gary Vollo. Finally we will lay out for the community our plans for the mansion - and the area surrounding it!"
