Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Research into archives at the parish have revealed that the organ was a Bergstrom.
Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Very little is known about this organ. According to the book Seattle Now and Then, the building was built in 1870 and was enlarged in 1882 to accommodate "the first pipe organ in the territory." In support of this, an extant photo in the church's archives shows a small instrument located in a transept to the left of the altar. The instrument is free-standing and encased - presumably with an attached, projecting keydesk. The keydesk area is not visible in the photo, but from the size of the instrument it must have been a small II-manual or modest I-manual organ. The 3-sectional facade contains 27 stencilled pipes arranged: 3-21-3. Further corroboration for the existence of this organ can be found in Pioneering God's Country - The History of the Diocese of Olympia, 1853 - 1953, by Thomas E. Jessett. On page 33 he states, "The first pipe organ in Washington was installed in Trinity Church, Seattle, in 1882. Both church and organ were destroyed in the Great Seattle Fire of 1889."
