MOUNT PLEASANT RETIREMENT VILLAGE WELCOMES 102 YEAR OLD NEW RESIDENT Monroe, Ohio. Mount Pleasant Retirement Village is busy putting the final touches on their new chapel that will open this month. The chapel will be home to the new 102-year-old resident, a completely refurbished Steinway & Sons Model A grand piano. The piano was completed in the Steinway & Sons New York Factory on June 22, 1906. It first belonged to German immigrants, Mr. & Mrs. Ernest Wolf. It was acquired by William and Fern Kenney sometime in the 1930’s. Mr. & Mrs. Kenney moved to Middletown bringing the piano along with them. Mrs. Kenney was a resident at Mount Pleasant Retirement Village for several years and donated her beloved piano upon her passing. According to Steinway & Sons Heirloom Program, Steinway pianos that qualify for the heirloom Restoration Program will be completely dismantled and all major components discarded. The piano received all new belly and action parts. The plate is completely refinished. All pianos that go through the Heirloom process will have an Heirloom seal burned into the underside of the wrestplank and the underside of the soundboard. Read more »
