The mission of the Friends of the Coltrane Home is the preservation of the home and the creation of a museum and cultural center. Planned is an historic restoration of the home including a selection of original furnishings and instruments, an extensive digital archive with listening stations, a meditation garden dedicated to Alice Coltrane and archival materials donated by Coltrane scholars and collectors. Pilot educational programs begin this fall offsite and will continue at the Home when it opens to the public.
