Database Manager on November 07, 2008:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was removed and placed in storage in 1956 when the hospital was razed. It remained there until 1980 when it was acquired by Salisbury Presbyterian Church in Salisbury, VA, who was embarking on building a new sanctuary. It was restored over a two-year period and installed in 1982 by an unknown person or firm.
