Jim Stettner on August 19, 2021:

Updated through online information from Molly Herzog. -- The organ was originally here at the Independent Presbyterian Church of Savannah, Georgia. IPC owned a large H&H in the sanctuary, as well as this particular H&H 'Chapel Organ.'

The Chapel organ was given or sold, (I am not sure) by IPC to First Scots Presbyterian Church of Beaufort, South Carolina and placed in climate controlled storage. First Scots built their new building and decided the instrument wasn't large enough.

First Scots Presbyterian sold it to St. John's Episcopal in Worthington and Peebles-Herzob were contracted to evaluate the instrument while in storage, then contracted to remove the organ to Columbus where we restored the instrument in our shop and installed it in the church in 2021.

Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Independent Presbyterian: a small tracker-- Harrison?-- is in the small chapel, while the church has a larger something or another. This is the church where Lowell Mason was Sunday School superintendent and did some early music teaching before his greater work back in Boston. [PIPORG-L 28 Aug 1997]
