Database Manager on June 02, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- It was likely First Presbyterian. To date (6/07) this is the earliest known organ to have been in Knoxville. Unless an Erben or a Hall come to light, this may have been the first organ. [Source: Listing of Simmons & Willcox organs by state]
