Database Manager on September 19, 2016:

Updated through online information from Steve Bartley.
Photographs on the Sharon Baptist Church Facebook page shows the Johnson facade pipes and woodwork intact, though sitting behind the arched chamber opening. Ten-twenty years ago the floors and much of the supports were replaced due to termite damage, it is possible that the organ was removed, leaving only the facade. There is no key desk in the photos, and the case appears to be be painted brown. The photos also show a Hammond organ and a church model electronic organ.
