This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ.
Identified by J. A. Hefner, listing conversations with this person as the source of the information: Aaron M. Tellers (Tellers Organ Co.).
This organ's home was constructed in 1878-9, with the organ installed soon thereafter. The structure was considered to be one of the most modern in the county, rivaling the structures in large cities in Ohio. The organ had what looked to be a stenciled facade.
In February 1895, the church was completely destroyed in a fire. Rebuilding took place immediately, and a Steere organ (opus 417) was installed and dedicated in September 1896.
