Stories About FCC's Pipe Organs

Do you have any memories, stories, or historic photos of the pipe organs at First Congregational Church?  Do you have the recital program from when Virgil Fox visited our instrument?  Nicholas Schmelter is preparing a scrapbook of these archives and hopes to include archives and first-hand accounts.

Taken from the congregation's archives, the first historic photo is from the 1920s.  The six visible organ pipes did not sound.  Note the divided choir.  From the 1970s, the second photo documents the rear balcony, glass windows, and full congregation following the post-fire rebuild of the sanctuary.
