Installed by Philip Bachman. First played 22 May 1798. Later moved to another building. Placed in storage in attic of Moravian Home Church. Restored in 1964 by McManis Organ Co. [Is this the organ for which the OHS Historic Organs Citation approved, but not presented as of 1987?]. Much of the missing pipework has now [2001] been found, and the organ wil be re-restored.
