Notes

  • Identified from factory documents and publications courtesy of Stephen Schnurr. (Database Manager. April 11, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- The church moved to a suburban location after my visit in June 1998; not known if the organ went along. I doubt if it did in its present form; at the time of my visit, the organ had recently sustained severe water damage and needed some serious work. (Database Manager. April 30, 2012)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Just before my visit in June 1998, the organ had sustained serious water damage; the old downtown church buildings were sold to Georgia College in 2005 to become the Student Activities Center; the sanctuary was converted into The Magnolia Ballroom. (Database Manager. April 18, 2013)
