Database Manager on July 10, 2010:

Updated through on-line information from Robert Collins. -- The organ was installed at Vincent Methodist Episcopal Church in Spokane, Washington. This was likely the very first pipe organ in Spokane. (Newspaper article announcing inaugural recital states this is the only pipe organ in the city at the time, although a smaller Kimball was built for the Majestic Theater in 1901 also. A stoplist/spec is provided). After Vincent M.E. reunited with First M.E. to become Central United Methodist, the organ was shipped to First M.E. in Ellensburg (who had just completed their new building).
