This organ was transported from Victoria by members of the Couper Family. Steve Couper and his brother Bob settled in Dowerin in 1897 and encouraged his parents and sisters to relocate to Dowerin. The organ was brought from Victoria by boat and train, and then loaded onto a wagon. When the Couper Family finally arrived in Dowerin it was late in the day. The story goes that the family unpacked their bedding and the organ. After they ate their meals, everyone gathered around the organ to sing.
