Timothy E. Conyers on August 27, 2020:

The instrument was obtained by the St. John the Apostle Catholic Church of Bloomington, Indiana. It is unclear if it was purchased - it had been advertised on the Organ Clearing House website - or was given to the church. The church's website states it was obtained for free and they only had to pay for removal, storage, and installation. Further details about the project can be found at the church website: https://www.sjabloomington.org/pipe-organ.
