  1. Philip Enge says:

    I believe the last entry regarding the Holloway/Buzard organ is in Bloomington, IN, not on Mulberry St. in Normal.

  2. Karl Bruhn says:

    I think a list like this of your area Pipe Organs is a great thing. Very interesting. Keep up the good work, and keep expanding your list.

    • David Byrkit says:

      I believe that the Hinners and Albertson/Buzard is located in the Presbyterian Church in Knoxville, Il (five miles from Galesburg).

  3. Anonymous says:

    How about St. Mark’s, Washington, IL?

  4. Gordon Petry says:

    Pekin Congregational UCC has a Hinners organ that works, but could use some repair. Any suggestions would be welcome.
