Notes: Photo and information from Dobson factory. Organ Historical Society as of 2010. Lake City Union Church is the result of a merger of the Methodist and Presbyterian churches in Lake City, one block apart. Both buildings were torn down and the new sanctuary was attached to the newer education wing of the Presbyterian church, which was retained.
Notes from Lynn Dobson:
The Methodist church’s Moller went to the Methodist church in Glidden, IA. The Reuter organ, about 1971 5 ranks, in the Presbyterian Church went to Tennessee. Milnar came and removed it and enlarged it. The Presbyterians had a previous organ about 1906 by Moller. It had about 16 ranks as I recall and most of the pipes were saved along with parts of the console. That organ had been electrified in the 50’s from a tubular action. parts of it were stored in the balcony of the church which had been closed off for years because of structural fears and was sold off at the sale of the church. Austin Farlee’s grand mother gave that organ to the church. (The keyboards, bench and notes 1-12 of the wood 8' Open Diapason found their way into David Engen's house organ.)
