Updated through online information from James C. Burke, Ph.D.. -- In 1954, St. John's Episcopal Church moved from downtown Wilmington to a new suburban location. The 1913 Estey organ was installed in the new structure. The organ was dismantled in 1990. Source: McClure, Robert. The Story of St. John's Episcopal Church. Wilmington, NC: Wilmington Printing co., 2003. 13, 19.

Note from direct observation: Several Wilmington artists recycled pipes and woodwork into art. All other materials were discarded.
