Day 25 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Antique Organ

This is a Needham antique organ that lives on the 3rd floor of the Hotel Boulderado's Historic Section on the west side. Elias Needham was made famous for his invention of the upright organ, like the one you see here, that became popular in parlors. This particular organ came to the Hotel Boulderado thanks to our one-time owner, Winnie Hutson. Coincidentally, the organ was purchased in the same lot as the lobby grandfather clock we saw last week.
