According to a report in The Evening Sun (Hanover) on Friday, June 30, 1916: "The music lovers of Hanover were afforded a rare treat last evening when Prof. J. Frank Frysinger. head of the organ school of Lincoln University, Lincoln, Nebraska, gave a recital on the Bates & Culley organ in Emmanuel Reformed church, Broadway." The article continues with a review and listing of the program played.
"The openign number, Wolstenhome's 'Sonata in the Style of Handel' as well as the closing numbers previously mentioned, showed the power of the Bates & Culley organ at the hands of a master composer and organist, and end a program which was thoroughly enjoyed."
Dedicated by John M.E. Ward on October 15, 1908. Conflicting dates exist in reports of when Bates & Culley moved this organ to Zion Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Church. One source gives that date as 1912. The Gazette of York, Pennsylvania, Oct 13, 1915, reports that Oliver Culley was in town to add "two stops to the organ at Emmanuel Reformed church." It is possible that the organ was moved later than previously thought, or Bates & Culley had provided a new organ in 1912 which they were now enlarging.
