Key & Stop VOICES: 8 STOPS: 10 RANKS: 8 PIPES: 409 NOTES The original home of this organ was First Presbyterian Church in Wellsboro, PA. When they got a new Moller in 1912, the King was relocated to Arnot. The organ is free-standing and encased at the front of the sanctuary. The 3-sectional façade contains 25 pipes arranged: 5-15-5. The pipes had been painted white with gold at the top. But formerly visible Pedal 16' Bourdon pipes reveal that the organ once may have had colorfully stenciled pipes. The first 13 pipes of the Great 8' Open Diap- ason are en façade. The keydesk has a folding cover which lifts to form a music rack. Stop controls are drawknobs in terraced jambs on either side of the manuals. The organ had been unplayable for many years. The blower disappeared. The Great pipe- work showed signs of damage from a ceiling collapse and rough handling, though the Swell pipework looked immaculate. The original double-rise regulator had been removed in 1957. The church could not fund its restoration and had plans to literally throw-out the organ. It had to be removed by Saturday April 20th. Joe Peckham who lives regionally notified organ builder Joe Granger of Lansing. Michigan who was able to get a deadline extension for removal. He drove to Arnot, PA. with asso- ciate Travis Tenwalde, and removed the organ on April 24 & 25, 2019. Only one stop face and three pipes were fond to be missing. The organ will be returned to Michigan and stored pending restoration.
