The 2 Organs of 'Indian Neck Hall'

Above is the first organ Ernest Flagg designed for Frederick G. Bourne's 'Indian Neck Hall' designed c. 1897-1900 in Oakdale. After Bourne had Flagg add a ballroom he also had his organ enlarged (c. 1908). Click HERE for more on 'Indian Neck Hall'. Photos courtesy of Jim Lewis.

That ballroom is enormous!!! Good grief. That's not a ballroom, that's a grand concert hall.

funny to see the original 'little' organ imbedded in the huge new one.

Neighbors of my great grandparents had an aeolian player organ in their huge music room. It was one of the wonders of my childhood---though the house was soon torn down, as was my great grandparent's a few years later...progress, progress...
