Asking price: Free

Description:

This 2-manual 1947 Keates pipe organ was produced in London, Ontario, Canada and was installed in Vanneck United Church in the hamlet of the same name located about 20 minutes northwest of London. Vanneck United Church closed in July, 2021, only 4 years shy of its congregation’s bicentennial. The 161-year old church was purchased by one of its former members. The organ is no longer needed and he plans to remove it. It is “free”!

This would be ideal for a small church or, as a DIY organ project for the Great Room of a private home. The organ fits quite well into its compact organ chamber which measures:

Length: 95 in. Width: 50 Height: 103

It was installed in 1947 to honour the veterans of WWI and WWII.

It had significant work done on it in 1984-85. At the same time, a very old blower was installed and still functions well.

Dimensions of the present blower:

Length: 45 in. Width: 35 Height: 50

In 2018-19 another major work was done on the organ.

The final Board of Trustees noted that “the organ needs major work done on it.”

(The façade and central organ tower will remain with the church [unless you make a deal that the owner just can’t refuse]).

This instrument was maintained by the Schmidt Piano and Organ Co. of Kitchener, Ontario.
