Jeff Scofield on October 14, 2021:

The organ was originally installed at Pattillo Memorial Methodist Church, Decatur, Georgia, in 1952; it was relocated temporarily to a residence in Macon, Georgia, where a re-installation never happened; it was removed by Barger & Nix in the late 1970's and installed at the East Ridge Assembly of God in Chattanooga, Tennessee; it was removed from there to storage at Barger & Nix and eventually relocated to Christ Episcopal Church in Albertville; it was damaged and the church nearly destroyed by a tornado on April 24, 2010; the organ was rebuilt by Barger & Nix and reinstalled in 2012 in the virtually new church; an organ loft space was created over the narthex.
