Knabe Piano Co. dome to be placed at museum

The dome is going to its new home.

Nearly 15 months after the cupola that adorned the old Knabe Piano Co. was hoisted by helicopter from near the new Ravens football stadium, the 6,600-pound crown will be taken by floating crane today to the Baltimore Museum of Industry Waterfront Promenade.

Built for the piano company that opened in 1869, the dome later adorned Sweetheart Corp. The 21-foot-tall cupola was airlifted in July 1998 to the Domino Sugar refinery. It is expected to arrive at the museum between 11 a.m. and noon.
