Facebook post shows new building owner is giving away instrument. Must be removed asap. Posted by Becky Onnen 1.19.21:

M.P. Moller organ in a church that was bought recently will be torn out and sent to a landfill if we can’t find a home for it. The contractor is passionate about finding someone to take it so that it won’t be trashed. It plays! I have more pictures but the post limits me to 10. Please help me find a home for it!!!

Note: this is MASSIVE! I was climbing in the wall, it's a good 10 feet deep, and went up ladders to get some of these pictures. It's going to take quite the space to house it.
