Database Manager on December 27, 2019:

The third organ in University Place Presbyterian Church was built in 1884 by Hilborne L. Roosevelt of New York City. Roosevelt retained the case and some pipework from the previous 1853 Henry Erben organ. Research has not yet determined if the organ was removed in 1918, when the church merged with First Presbyterian, or was demolished with the building.
