Database Manager on November 08, 2012:

Updated through online information from Jim Lewis. -- This organ, a one manual instrument built by George Jardine, was originally installed at Grace Episcopal Church in Lawrence, Mass. When Searles' company constructed a new organ for Grace Church in 1896 Searles had the Jardine organ from Grace reconditioned and installed in the Center St. Primitive Methodist Church, Methuen. It was placed in an alcove at the rear of the church.
