Donated Piano

In 1938, Steinway and Sons donated this piano to the White House. Musical themes a Barn dance, a cowboy with a guitar, the Virginia Reel, an African American dance, and an Indian ceremonial dance decorate the piano. Mrs. Roosevelt held musical performances in the East Room to encourage the country's interest in music.
