Mr. Robert Senseman visited the Bidwell-Wood House in June when his mother Lois Ann Senseman arrived to film her Ordinary Historian video. Her grandfather, his great grandfather, was the yacht captain for John and Mabel Ringling. While touring the house we mentioned that the JDeal pump organ in the parlor was in need of a strap repair on one of the pedals.

Mr. Senseman offered to do the repair. Amazingly he took the organ and did a full refurbishment and repair and brought it back better than ever. We cannot thank him enough.

The early 1800’s organ was donated to the  Historical Society of Sarasota County by Mike Lesnick of Bradenton.

See the pump organ in action in the MySuncoast tv coverage of our building. Linda has hidden talents!
