Database Manager on June 22, 2015:

Euclid Congregational Church did not have a need for the organ, so the Kegg console was returned to the builder. It was eventually sold to Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown, Texas (information from the dedication program at Grace Episcopal). Euclid Congregational relocated to a former Catholic Church building (St. Margaret Mary) in 2014, and is now known South Euclid UCC.
