This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ.
Identified by J. A. Hefner, citing information from this publication: " Books on Google Play 20th Century History of Springfield, and Clark County, Ohio, and Representative Citizens" by William M. Rockel.
The original church was established at a lot on S. Center Street in 1851, and during the pastorate of Rev. S. P. Dunlap (1887-1895), the building and congregation were expanded. ABF Opus 500 was apparently installed during that period.
Late in December 1902, the church burned. The church was rebuilt in the same location shortly thereafter (ready for use by summer 1903), and this is where ABF Opus 801 was installed. The church was apparently incorporated in 1930, and it appears in newspaper articles as late as 1944, though I don't know anything about what happened to it after that.
