Jim Stettner on July 09, 2021:

From a document submitted by Ronald J. Swedlund, this organ was relocated in 1944 to St. Paul's Methodist Church here in Monroe and installed in a single, front, expressive chamber by an unidentified person or firm. When a new Moller was installed in 1949, the Barton was retained as a Chancel division.
