This organ, one of four identical rental organs (Op. 81-84) built in 1884 by the Roosevelt Organ Works, was originally rented to the Second (Sawyer Memorial) Universalist Church. At some point, probably when the Hutchings organ was installed in 1898, the Roosevelt organ was moved to a Roman Catholic Church in Highland, N.Y., and was later owned by F.R. Webber.

The following specification was recorded by F.R. Webber in one of his "Organ Scrapbooks," now in the collection of The Organ Historical Society Archives in Princeton, N.J. Additional details are from the 1888 catalog published by the Roosevelt Organ Works. Webber wrote:
"The church was on E. 126th [sic] St., near Lexington ave. The organ was moved to a R.C. church in Highland, N.Y. Later owned by F.R.W. [Frederick R. Webber]
