FIREPLACE

Archaeology at work

When we started to peel away the faux wood walls in the minister's office, we didn't expect to find much other than (hopefully) the original brick walls. What we did find was the minister's original fireplace and plaster surface over the brick.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FIREPLACE

Does the organ play?

Of course it plays, what would be the point otherwise! The organ is fully restored and sounds wonderful in Adelaide Hall. We provide a list of Nashville organists for our clients.

Is the organ original?

It's original to the building, yes, but it was added in 1905, 16 years after the church was constructed. The church could not afford the organ initially, but the building was built in anticipation of its addition.

What is the organ used for today?

The organ is popular for wedding ceremonies, but it is also popular for dinner hour. It can be played for any type of music.
