1873 Estey Pump Organ 1873 Estey Pump Organ

Stories abound that an early organist insisted a small child sit on the floor, pumping the bellows for the hymns. And when the sermons ran on too long for the young choristers, they would slip out the large window behind the organ. During the late 1890s the organist was the esteemed Anthony Evans, brother of Dr. Evans of Tioga Point. Anthony was also known for his singing of Welsh hymns. More Estey organ info here
