The Trinidad, Colorado church was Trinity Episcopal. And the Hinners was installed in Dr. Magin's home ca. 1956 by himself assisted by friends and parishioners from his church job.

Database Manager on July 01, 2008:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- According to my former business partner - Clinton B. Meadway - who studied organ with Dr. Magin, this was a 2/7 Hinners tracker. It came from a church in Trinidad, Colorado. Who installed it at the Magin residence and when is unknown. It was removed by Clint in 1960, and purchased by a Dutch Reformed church in Downey, CA. As of 1965, it still had not been installed. Clint noted in his e-mail to me, "It had one interesting feature - the reservoir weight was a tombstone from the Trinidad church's graveyard." Source: E-mail from Clinton B. Meadway dated 6/29/08.
