New information found from the Dansville Express Thursday May 5, 1881 recalling the 50 year history of the church, describes the original church building which was constructed in 1846/1847. It mentions the organ, purchased of the celebrated builder Henry Erben. This original organ is believed to have been a 1 manual instrument, and further evidence suggests that it was located in a gallery.
