Molly Herzog on August 18, 2021:

The organ was originally at the Independent Presbyterian Church of Savannah, Georgia. IPC owned a large H&H in the sanctuary as well as this particular H&H 'Chapel Organ.'

The Chapel organ was given or sold, (I am not sure) by IPC to First Scots Presbyterian Church of Beaufort, South Carolina and placed in climate controlled storage. First Scots built their new building and decided the instrument wasn't large enough.

First Scots Presbyterian sold it to St. John's Episcopal in Worthington and Peebles-Herzog were contracted to evaluate the instrument while in storage, then contracted to remove the organ to Columbus where we restored the instrument in our shop and installed it in the church in 2021.
