Database Manager on March 28, 2014:

Updated through online information from Warren R. Johnson. -- First Baptist Church - American Baptist - is defunct, though the building remains. I grew up in this church and this is the first organ I ever played. It was an Austin with Austin universal air chest but with a Möller console in the 1950s-1960s. It remained in the building after the church folded (actually the church moved in with two other churches and then folded), but I do not know its current status.
