SOMETHING ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE PEDAL ORGAN and THE COMPANY Simeon Taylor and John A. Taylor went into partnership building melodeons as “Taylor & Farley” in 1855. Their factories were located in Worcester, Massachusetts, with warerooms in Rochester, NY. The firm was very successful and enjoyed substantial growth, adding organs and harmoniums to their product line by 1862. The firm was officially incorporated in 1870. After the turn of the 20th Century, the firm began to suffer as a result of the continued decline of the reed organ’s popularity in favor of the piano in Victorian society. The firm went out of business in about 1885. More portable than pipe organs, free-reed or pedal organs were widely used in smaller churches and in private homes in the 19th century, but their volume and tonal range were limited. They generally had one or sometimes two manuals, with pedal-boards being rare. The finer instruments had a wider range of tones, and the cabinets of those intended for churches and affluent homes were often excellent pieces of furniture.
