William M. Worden on September 14, 2020:

The Detroit "Free Press" of February 8, 1903, reporteded that Mrs. Newberry hosted an event at which her guests had the opportunity of listening to the new pipe organ in her new music room. The organ was gone by the time the house was demolished about 1960 for urban renewal.
