According to the TheatreOrgans dot com online database of original organ installations, the Jennings Theatre had a 2 manual, 16 rank Hillgreen-Lane theatre pipe organ, opus 471, installed in 1917 at a cost of $5,500. The blower serial number was 8024. Does anybody know what happened to this organ and where it (or parts of it) are today?
