Scot Huntington on April 07, 2021:

A tracker built for the original church, date currently unknown. The organ was rebuilt on unit chests by Buhl when the congregation built a new brick church in the 1930s. When the sanctuary was rebuilt in the early 1960s, the organ was allocated to a deep chamber with inadequate egress, and further work was done by either Buhl's successor, either Barlow or Cortese. The organ was inadequate in the dead room and was supplanted by a Conn with the patented Conn Pipe speakers. When this inevitably failed, they replaced it with a newer imitation and sold the organ to the United Methodist Church in nearby Oneonta, where it was rebuilt by Chase Organ Co. of Worcester, New York on new chests for the Fellowship Hall.
