Notes

  • [Which congregation?] (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Updated by Edwin H. Myers Jr, who gave this as the source of the information: I recently visited the church, which is closed..

    Recently visited the organ. The church is closed and the building is in the process of being sold. The organ still is functioning but reservoir doesn't rise anymore and many ciphers and sticking keys. It probably hadn't been used in years.

    Unsure of the future of the organ at this time.

    Pedal Bourdon action is tubular-pneumatic.

    British Organ Blowing Co. organ blower was installed inside the case at one time. Hand pump lever and feeders still hooked up. (Thurlow Weed. July 24, 2019)
