Our History

It was a cold, snowy day in 1961 when Dennis Milnar knocked on the door of the Delaware Organ Co. Milnar, then a young man, couldn't see the sign on the snow-covered door in Tonawanda, New York. He knocked anyway and asked for work. The man who answered the door was Mr. Robert Colby, the company president and Dennis's future mentor. He said "We are doing Christmas tunings and could use a key holder for a few weeks." Dennis spent the next few days holding keys and passing screwdrivers for the craftsmen at Delaware. By the end of the week, they had agreed to take him on as an apprentice. After a seven-year apprenticeship, Dennis and his wife Connie moved their family to Nashville, Tennessee, and started Milnar Organ Company.

Humble Beginnings

The company started in the basement of the Milnar family home. Opening up a pipe organ business in Nashville was quite an undertaking. Dennis and Connie worked day and night to establish themselves in the area. Connie worked as office administrator, while Dennis closed contracts and managed construction. With five children, Connie had her hands full. She worked until the early '80s, when a full-time secretary was hired.

As the company expanded, they built a new workshop and an addition to the house. They then moved both the family and the company to Eagleville. Most of the family has worked in the business throughout the years since the move. In December 1995, the company became an LLC, and sons Derek, Jeff, Todd, and Greg became partners in the business.
