Paul R. Marchesano on August 11, 2022:

The [Western Reserve Historical] Society collection includes a one-manual, two rank organ built by Geo. Jardine and Son of New York City. The Society dates the organ between 1835 and 1850; Peter Cameron of Methuen, Massachusetts places the instrument at around 1837. It is thought that the Rice family brought the organ from New York to Cleveland in the mid-1880s (William Lowe Rice lived in a mansion at 2300 Overlook Road). In 1918, Fred White purchased the organ along with the residence, and the museum acquired the organ in 1944. The instrument holds OHS Historic Organ Citation #342. -- 2009 OHS Atlas
