Database Manager on February 02, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Originally built for the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville, Florida in 1927. Ultimately placed in storage in a warehouse in Miami where it was discovered by the Manasota Theatre Organ Society in 1996. It was removed from Miami to Sarasota by the MTOS and refurbished by members who arranged to have it placed at Grace Baptist and continued to enlarge the instrument and add suitable church ranks in addition to the original Wurlitzer stoplist.
