It’s funny how the potential of a donation and the 1888 book can tie together and become a blog! A few weeks ago, an Instagram follower offered her piano to the Historical Society as part of our collection. It was made in Erie and I love adding Erie things, BUT it’s a piano and my storage space is severely limited right now. I am still considering it so Allison, if you read this, I haven’t forgotten! I did a quick bit of research on the piano, which led me to consider Erie’s strong reputation for the manufacture of pianos and organs in the past. My focus today is on one building and the history of all the businesses that were located there, including an organ and a piano manufacturer.
