Jim Stettner on September 03, 2020:

In 2001, the congregations of the old St. Bartholomew and St. Columba Parishes were merged into one at a new location. The old building is slated for demolition. The organ was examined by Joe Granger of Granger Pipe Organs in Lansing, Michigan on September 2, 2020. It was found to be in very poor condition and unplayable. Case panels had been removed. Pipework had been vandalized and stolen. And the organ inside and out was liberally coated in pigeon guano.

Jim Stettner on September 03, 2020:

The original 1916 Hinners was a tracker-action instrument. It is free-standing and encased in the rear gallery with a pipe fence facade.
