Church Pipe Organ Gets Fine Tuning

It's been around for more than a century, but now, a historic pipe organ at a central Kentucky church is about to get some fine tuning.

The organ at First Presbyterian Church in Georgetown is being sent off to Louisville for a complete restoration.

Monday morning, church members helped take the pipes apart, one by one, and load them onto a truck to be transported.

The organ has been playing music at the church since 1895.

Restoration of the organ is expected to take about five or six weeks. This has to be done once every 75 years.

There are only two other pipe organs like it in Kentucky.
