Organ Free to a Good Home


Church of St. Andrew United Methodist has a very nice Baldwin organ free to go to a good home! We're not positive on the year but think mid 90's maybe. It is in excellent shape, the previous owner played every day for enjoyment. In his younger years he owned the Baldwin piano and organ store in downtown Toledo so he knew his organs, he has since passed away and we would just like to find it a nice home, he loved his organ.  For more information, please contact Liz Hodges at 419.283.2984 or at or visit the MWD Classified Ads page by clicking: MWD Ads - Free Organ.
