Database Manager on October 25, 2018:

Updated by William M. Worden, who gave this as the source of the information: I know the history of the building..

The present St. John Cantius Church was built from 1923-25 and cannot be the original site of this organ. A school with a church space was completed in 1911 and presumably this organ was installed in that temporary church space. The entire complex has been closed since 2007. although the church and school are still standing. Whether the Felgemaker was moved to the very large new church I do not know; it would not likely have been adequate. Whatever organ was in the 1925 church was sold after the closure to the Aebel company.
