Our Organ

Music has always been an integral part of our congregation. Our church history is marked by organized orchestras and choirs as well as social community music services. The original Fisher Memorial Organ was built by and later remodeled by Joseph Gratian of Alton. In the 1950s, the organ was placed in chambers on either side of the chancel and altered greatly. The chancel was re-designed with choir pews placed on each side of the chancel facing one another. The 1984 renovation placed the organ console in the center of the chancel at the back wall. Choir pews were replaced with moveable chairs.  (The original organ was sold to Mr. David Wilson of Palmyra who rebuilt it for use in the Palmyra Presbyterian Church).
