Clark-Sampson Funeral Home

The only remaining funeral home pipe organ in St. Joseph is located in the Clark-Sampson Funeral Home at 120 Illinois Ave.  It is comprised of three ranks assembled from a variety of sources by James Lawbaugh, a local organbuilder, probably in the 1950’s.  The console is located in a small room adjoining the chapel, while the blower and pipework are located in the basement.  The sound is ducted to a floor grate in the console room.
