Augusta Museum Gifted an 1890s Player-Piano

The Augusta Museum was gifted an 1890s player-piano from Alan and Kathryn Frazier on June 14th. It sure was heavy, but we had the help of Thomas Whelan Jr, Eric Gargrave and Micah, Rob Gaugh, Judy Renner, Sally Heining and Angela Stephens. Alan said moving the piano from his house, down the street and to the museum reminded him of the old Laurel and Hardy piano skit. The piano now has a comfy home in the Sehrt kitchen.
