  • Note from Organ Database Builders editor Stephen Hall, December 16, 2017. -

    In 1958, the Kilgen Organ Company of St. Louis, Missouri, a major builder of thousands of pipe organs, closed its doors. Several of its branch offices throughout the United States continued on their own as pipe organ service companies and retained the Kilgen name. These companies serviced all Kilgen organs in their areas, but also worked on other brands.

Some of our entries are names that might never appear on a nameplate or nameboard.
On the other hand, there are both individuals and firms who are responsible for conserving historic organs through location, or preserving the usefulness of pipe organs through rebuilding or making modifications to existing instruments. In these cases, we are proud to acknowledge their contributions to the ongoing artistic tradition of the pipe organ in America through individual entries in our online database.
