Help Preserve the Sayre Family Piano!

Help Preserve the Sayre Family Piano!

We have the opportunity to acquire the Sayre family piano. We have been in contact with the family that received the piano in 1932 after Zelda’s father died and her mother moved from the Pleasant Ave home to the Sayre Street bungalow. We are in the process of determining if the piano was at the Felder Ave home before being given to the current family before the Fitzgeralds moved to Baltimore.

We appreciate any donations to help us preserve this heirloom!
