William Dunklin on November 24, 2020:

Per the church's website, the building constructed in 1905 was used until 1925 when it was replaced by the current structure. The 1905 building no longer exists. Fate of the 1905 Pilcher is unknown. The church bought a larger Pilcher in 1925 but no mention is made if the older organ was taken in trade or if any parts were incorporated into the newer organ.
