This entry represents the installation of a used pipe organ. according to the church website, "1930 — A used pipe organ is purchased for $1,500 from the Seventh-Day Baptist Church of Alfred, N.Y. Though no longer in use, the huge organ pipes are a prominent backdrop behind the lighted hanging cross at the front of the sanctuary."
