"Extensive repairs and improvements are being made on the organ at First Methodist Church, the approximate cost of which may exceed $3,400. The instrument is a three manual Haskell organ and the repairs are being made by the Bartholomay Company of Philadelphia." -- Courier-Post (Camden, New Jersey) · 17 Jul 1924, Thu · Page 10

Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Not used since 1969 (church closed in 1969). The building was purchased and was maintained by Cooper University Medical Center.

Haskell stopkeys; wooden oboe & saxophone. Electrified in 1920's by Bartholomay. Rebuilt again in 1937 by Jacob Gerger & Son, Philadelphia. Swell Vox Humana replaced a 2' Flageolet from the 1920 rebuild. [Church previously had an 1867, II/22 rk J. C. B. Standbridge organ which was moved to this building in c. 1896, then sold to a minister in Denver, CO in 1904.] Great division destroyed when ceiling collapsed. Remainder relocated to St. Mary Magdalen R. C., Millville, NJ. The Tracker, 42:3:9 indicates that it was originally tubular pneumatic.
