We envision an international community that values the exploration of the music, heritage, and culture of the early 20th century, particularly as it relates to Percy Grainger’s work, and is empowered to preserve it and interpret it for future generations.
Our mission is to promote the work and legacy of Percy Grainger with a membership community that preserves his historic house, encourages appreciation and performance of his music, and promotes a deeper understanding of the cultural, social, and economic context of his life and work.

We hope that you can visit the historic home of Percy Grainger in White Plains, New York. Rose and Percy Grainger moved here in May 1921. After Rose's death in 1922 Percy married Ella Viola Strom in 1928. Together, they made 7 Cromwell Place their unique home and workspace for the rest of their lives. From Rime Tiles to Free Music Machines, these creatives made this 1890s home their very own.
