This entry represents the moving and reinstallation of an existing organ into a merged congregation at a new edifice. Organ relocated without any change.

Identified by James R. Stettner, based on information from a Facebook post with photos by Scott Montgomery, and ensuing posts by others including former church member Robert Woodworth, Jr.. -- The organ was originally built for the Presbyterian church. In 1923, the Presbyterian and Congregational churches merged and federated at the Congregational church building and the Hinners was moved from the Presbyterian edifice.
