Round Lake Organ Declared National Monument

The 1847 Ferris organ in the Round Lake Auditorium in Round Lake, NY has been designated a National Historic Landmark, believed to be the first such honor for any organ in North America.

AGO member Agnes Armstrong wrote a letter in support of the designation to the National Park Service. “I’m thrilled. This is really exciting,” she said in an interview with the Times Union newspaper. She has played recitals on the organ for more than 30 years and released a CD of organ music played on the Ferris titled “Victorian Christmas in Round Lake.”
