Organ installation timeframe: 1992-present
 
Back to the Private Residence Installations page

The Sullivan residence organ started out in Tacoma's Victory Theatre in 1927. The instrument was removed from the theatre in 1929 by Balcom & Vaughan and reinstalled in Bellingham's Harlow-Hollingsworth Mortuary (later called Jones Funeral Home) for a cost of $1,500, with $400 down and monthly payments for an extended period.
 
In 1992, the organ was purchased by Gordon Sullivan of Custer, Washington just North of Bellingham. The instrument was installed in his home with the consultation and help of Don Stagg, Bob & Mary Whelan, and Bob Otey. According to Jim Stettner, the original toy counter had been removed when the organ was installed in the Bellingham funeral home. For the reinstallation in Custer, Bob Maes of Kansas City found a suitable replacement.
