This entry represents the first installation of a new organ, based upon information from the 'History' age of the church's website.

"A new church building was constructed on the corner of Bridge and Ontario Streets, following a successful building fund drive. The building was dedicated on May 13, 1897, had a seating capacity of 1,000 and a cost of $21,000 to build and furnish. < snip > In 1905, a significant fire ruined the organ, damaged a piano, and the interior of the church."
