An Erard piano built in Paris in the 1870s was donated to Cedarville from this abandoned home in Springfield.


An abandoned house in Springfield, Ohio, has become a center of restoration for broken lives and a broken piano. Empty for ten years, the house now belongs to Safe Harbor House, a ministry for women in crisis. Volunteers restored the building, and Safe Harbor donated the historic French piano it previously housed to Cedarville University. Now the piano is also restored, and Cedarville will host a musical celebration March 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Dixon Ministry Center Recital Hall to unveil the instrument and honor the ministry of Safe Harbor. The concert, titled “Making All Things New,” is free and open to the public.
