I don't know anything about pianos. Anyone know approximate value? This was a one owner, rarely moved, meticuously maintained by my great uncle. Thoughts?

Even if it was maintained well, it likely needs a lot of work at that age, if it's original. Depending to some extent on how much your great uncle played, and of course the climate. Value also depends on the size. Chickering was a good brand but I don't think it's among the most desirable piano brands of the golden age. It could be worth a couple thousand dollars.

Call a technician in your area, or the one who maintained it for your great uncle, and ask about it.
