Jim Stettner on April 28, 2021:

Identified through online information from Rose Eide-Altman. -- We moved it ourselves, the person we bought it from gave us advice, as well as boxes for the pipes, because he had moved it several times. It is a major job with 212 pipes and old wiring, but we got it in place and got it working.

Ed. Note: the organ was moved from the Eide-Altman residence in Sykesville, Maryland.
