Thurlow B. Weed on October 15, 2020:

Information gleaned from Ebay listing and online research: the church closed this building in 2015, and the organ was removed at that time and has been in storage. The church built a new modern facility across the street around that time, and the former building was purchased by the city in 2019 to be converted to new city commission chambers and other city offices.
