Howard Burr purchased the organ in 1957. It was previously installed in Renton's Maple Leaf Tavern. According to Eugene Nye's detailed records, Balcom & Vaughan relocated the instrument to Mr. Burr's modest Wallingford bungalow at a cost of $2,060.
The organ was originally from the Olympic/Woodland Theatre.
In 1997, the organ was purchased by the Everett Theatre Society. It was installed in the Everett Theatre largely due to volunteer efforts.
