This organ was built for Chicago's Christian Congregational Church in 1895. Their organist, Don Jorge Rico, worked with Heriberto Raymundo Moreno Baeza to have it relocated to Guadalajara's Congregational Church of the Good Shepherd [in Mexico], where engineer William H. Kock restored it in 2000. It has 13 ranks and an electric blower, original otherwise.
