    York

    SEE ALSO: WEAVER, LIVINGSTON. The York Piano Company was one of the highest grade brand names of pianos manufactured by the Weaver Piano & Organ Company of York, PA. The firm was established in 1870, and they built a full line of reed organs and chapel organs, slowly phasing out organs and increasing piano production as the turn-of-the-century approached. Along with York, The Weaver Piano Company built several popular brand names including Livingston, Mercer, Lincoln, and Davies & Sons. After the Great Depression era, Weaver built a line of spinet, console and baby grand pianos under the York name that remained popular for several decades. The Weaver Piano & Organ Company was out of business by the late 1950s. The extant Weaver and York instruments we have seen come through our restoration shop have been very well made pianos.
