In 1881, William Belden signed a contract with J.H. & C.S. Odell & Company for a three-manual organ for his Fifth Avenue residence. The original cost was $12,470. Just two years earlier, in 1879, Belden had the Odells build a three-manual organ for his residence on City Island in The Bronx, Odell's Op. 172.
The Fifth Avenue mansion organ was sold to the Troy (N.Y.) Savings Bank in 1889, where it is extant in the building now known as the Troy Music Hall.
