Originally built for Convent on the Visitation, Mobile, Alabama. In 1957, sold to St. James for less than $2,000 and moved by Ronald Norwood of Fairhope, Alabama. In the late 1970s-early 1980s, Norwood added 9 ranks, electrified the stop action, and replaced the original flat pedalboard with a concave pedalboard. In 1997, Mann & Trupiano of Brooklyn, N.Y., restored and moved the organ to chapel of new church location.
