Jeff Scofield on May 11, 2021:

The pipe organ, still played today, was purchased in England by Trinity Episcopal Church of Pittsburgh, and was brought over the mountains by mule. This organ was given to Old St Luke’s Church in 1852, when Trinity acquired a new organ. This organ is the oldest pipe organ west of the Allegheny mountains, and is still played today for all weddings and ceremonies held in the church.
