Commentaires : This organ was once used in the Keir Memorial Presbyterian Church of Malpeque. Today, the Keir Memorial Church is housed within the same building the church once occupied. The building was constructed in 1927, after the formation of the United Church of Canada. The museum gets its name from Rev. John Keir, who was the first Protestant minister ordained in Prince Edward Island- specifically Malpeque in 1810. He ministered to the inhabitants of Malpeque and surrounding areas for over 50 years. When the church was built to house the congregation, who wished to remain Presbyterian, the church was named in honour of the community's longest-serving minister. The final service of the Keir Memorial Presbyterian Church was held on August 14, 1983. Most of the furnishings were sent to the Presbyterian Church in Kensington, a neighbouring community (pulpit, pews, communion table, plate and baptismal font), but the oak organ and bench remained in Malpeque. The organ is still in working condition. The Keir Memorial museum was formed in the early 1980's by a group of local historians who had been meeting as the Malpeque Historical Society since 1979. Manufacturer Narrative: Made by the Thomas Organ Company, based out of Woodstock, Ontario. Edward G. Thomas founded the Thomas Organ Company in 1875 their first instruments were pipe organs and they later manufactured reed organs as well. In 1956, the company reorganized and relocated their headquarters to Sepulveda, California.
