According to the Times (Owen Sound, September 9, 1904): "The old pipe organ that did service for a quarter of a century in the First Methodist Church was taken down last week by Mr. A. Matthews and staff of Breckels & Matthews, organ builders, Toronto, and shipped away to their factory. It will probably be rebuilt and in some reconstructed form do service for some smaller and less affluent congregation in some other town. The pipes for the new organ are arriving daily and are being carried into the church today by Mr. Matthews and his staff ... Mr. Matthews informed The Times yesterday that the new organ which was being installed will contain no less than 1208 pipes ... The organ is a duplicate of the one in St. Augustine's Church, Toronto ... The woodwork is of quarter-cut oak, golden finish, and the pipes, which are now in the hands of the decorators, will be finished in gold and colors. The organ has been two months under construction and will cost $3500. A modern feature is that the keyboard, or console, is detached from the organ and is located down in the centre of the choir circle. It is connected with the organ by a tube pneumatic action ... The opening recital is fixed for Friday evening, September 23rd, when Mr. Arthur Blakeley of Sherbourne Street Church, Toronto, will give a recital."
