Old Pipe Organ
The 135 plus year old Hook and Hastings pipe organ in the Washington Presbyterian Church in Wilkes County. The organ was made in Boston and brought by ship to Savannah and wagon to Washington. The two manual organ with an office and a half of pedals was originally hand pumped and was electrified in the 40's. The chair and arm are still there. The organ is played every Sunday for church and I have played it numerous times over the years. Most church's have electric organs not pipe organs any more. Sharleen Anderson
