Pipe Organ at Historic Church Under Renovation

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The beautiful organ that often fills Memorial Presbyterian Church with music is undergoing a massive restoration project.

The project at the historic St. Augustine church will clean and voice the more than 5,000 pipes.

During the year-long period, sections of pipes will be removed to restore them.

The computer in the organ is also receiving some fine tuning.

The pipe organ chamber is a series of rooms connected with narrow walkways and ladders.

The pipes range in size from a few inches to 16 feet in length. There are wooden, metal, spherical and square shaped pipes.

A $350,000 grant to the church is funding the project.

Since the project started, the organ has continued to play every Sunday.
