There is also a parking garage where you can pay for parking at the East End Garage; enter from Main Street or Scio Street. There is also a very small parking lot on Lawn Street, noted for Christ Church parking only. Please enter through the Parish House Entrance, as it is handicap accessible.

This presentation will include both Mr. Higgins talking about and playing on the Historic American Romantic Hook & Hastings pipe organ. Mr. Higgins will also perform on the Craighead-Saunders Organ.
