This entry represents the moving and reinstallation of an existing organ for a temporary space. Identified through online information from Christopher Ketcham of Swain & Kates. The organ was originally built for the San Francisco residence of Justin Kielty. When the organ was sold by Kielty to St. Agnes R.C. Church in 19_ _, it was relocated 'as is' to the parish hall of the congregational while the new church was being built. At this time, the Pedal 16' Bourdon extension was added.

When the new church was completed, the organ was removed, rebuilt, and enlarged by Swain & Kates.
