Regarding Jefferson Street Methodist Church. I grew up going to Jefferson Street Methodist. The pipe organ still has the original foot pumps, 25 "display" pipes above the keyboard in the front and 25 more "display" pipes in front of the rear pipes in the balcony. It also still has the original slate roof tile on the main sanctuary which is the original building.
