The Organ List
Organs of Interest in the Upper Midwest
The New Organ List

To easily locate an organ in the list, use your browser's "find" function, usually ctrl-f.

Over many years, Dick Greene assembled a comprehensive list of over 2100 instruments, truly a remarkable resource which many of us use on a regular basis.  We will forever be in his debt and wish him all the best with the free time he will now have in full retirement.

The New Organ List is a work in progress. I am converting pages in city-name order, starting with Minnesota. If your city/organ is not found in The New Organ List, check The Old Organ List (below). You may need to press the reload symbol (on Chrome it's a partial circle on the upper left by the URL line). When the conversion is complete, the Old Organ List will be retired.

Should you run into a 404 File Not Found error, try rebooting your computer.

Please continue to send new and old organs and corrections.  We try and publish a brief description of each organ with its builder and date, stoplist, along with pictures of the building, the console and a view of the pipes if possible.
