The historic Grainger Home and Workspace, built in 1893, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally the residence of David Cromwell, banker and prominent local citizen, the house was purchased by by Percy Grainger and his mother Rose in 1921. Grainger lived in the house until his death in 1961. The house looks as it did when he lived there, with his instruments and other furnishings.
The White Plains Historical Commission recently recommended to the City of White Plains that the Percy Grainger Home be designed an Historical Landmark.
The City of White Plains, upon unanimous vote by the Common Council, accepted the Commission's recommendation, and the Grainger Home was recognized for its historic and cultural significance.
If you are interested in seeing this historic treasure in person, please join us for a dedication on May 12, 2017.REGISTER
