From the Organ Page on the church website: One of the charming anecdotes connected with Mr. Skinner and the purchase of the organ related that because of the builder’s advanced age, the trustees had “second thoughts” and cancelled their original order. However, in the name of decency and fair play, Mr. Skinner insisted upon the opportunity to confront the church officers. After hearing their concern, the organ builder proceeded to walk across the board table on his hands! A binding contract was signed and the proud Mr. Skinner reveled in the praise lauded upon the instrument at its dedication.
In 1945, Calvary Presbyterian Church, which had split from First Presbyterian in 1855, reunited with First Presbyterian. The combined congregation meets in the former First Presbyterian building, and is named Calvary Presbyterian.
Dedication recital played by Dr. T. Tertius Noble on December 5, 1937.
