It went directly from the Carmel Swedish Lutheran to Pastor Simonson's residence. When Rev. Simonson passed away, the family came to Rev. Robert Langsteth (ret., Faith Lutheran, Calumet) who helped arrange donation of the organ to the Keweenaw Heritage Center in Calumet. Source: phone conversation with Rev. Langsteth on 11/8/07.
