Rhea Organ


The Association is pleased to announce the donation of another major collection - Richard “Dick” Rhea of Sharon Springs has donated the Rhea Antique Pump Organ Collection to our Museum! We are excited to bring another dimension to the Fort Wallace Museum and are so grateful to the entire Rhea family for the product of nearly 30 years of Dick’s treasured hobby. The Pump Organ Collection was housed in the Sharon Springs Main Street building since 2003.
