Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Church closed c. 1930. Organ vandalized and in storage at Bear Creek. Building property of Parks Canada., derelict and boarded up. Its squat tower leans like Pisa. | $10,00 (sic) organ in Klondike; Dawsonites given a splendid treat - Carl delights KlondikersThe organ recital given on the Karn Pipe Organ at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church last evening by William C. Carl was the greatest treat of the kind ever afforded the people of Dawson. Never before in the far northern latitude perhaps has an organ been made to respond to such a master hand. aside from giving Dawson a treat in rare classical music from the works of many of the greatest compsers the world has known, Mr. Carl last night also showed the great range of possibilities on the mammoth instrument. (Dawson Daily News Aug. 4 1903) ** the organ is listed as a 2 manual tubular pneumatic action organ
