Jeff Scofield on July 21, 2020:

The Casavant opus list says that this is a rebuild of their 1913 Op. 524; another source says that Op. 524 went to Metropolitan United Church in Swift Current, which burned in 1943; the Metropolitan congregation then merged into the Swift Current Presbyterian Church and the merged congregation became First United Church of Swift Current.
