Database Manager on May 03, 2017:

Updated by Helen Boyle, who has heard or played the organ. I have seen and heard this Tracker pipe organ built by my 2 x great grandfather George on Feb. 10, 2017. Cathy and her husband Stephen Racine bought the old Methodist church 11 years ago with the organ still intact in its place it was put in 1905. I have photos of it and a video of two song being played. I called the United Methodist church the end of Jan 2017; they got back to me Feb. 10 told me that they could not move it to the new church because of cost and it would not fit. Alex Belair from Conn has done some tuning on this organ.
