Database Manager on May 07, 2018:

Until 1956, this Lodge used a reed organ. On 31 March of that year, Fred H. Meunier wrote to Lodge member William C. Schliecker advising him that he had available a pipe organ in storage in Las Vegas, New Mexico, the same make as the organ in the Central Presbyterian Church at 17th and Sherman in Denver (i.e., a Farrand & Votey). He indicated that the organ was hand-pumped; that it would cost $1,800 to install; and that a "Denver church would also like to have the organ, but I offered it to you first." -- 1998 OHS Handbook
