This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by William Dunklin, using information found in a vintage postcard.
A vintage postcard shows a 2 manual pipe organ standing in a chamber at the right side of an Akron plan room. It has a polychromed pipe fence facade with two minor towers. The attached console has knobs on terraced jambs. The Zionsville Reformed Church is now known as the Zionsville United Church of Christ, but occupies the same building.
