JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) — A pipe organ that had been housed inside a New York church ruined by dust from the Sept. 11 terror attacks may soon have a new home in Georgia.

The massive pipe organ from Trinity Wall Street is being donated to Johns Creek United Methodist Church outside Atlanta. It hasn't been played since it was dismantled in the days after the attacks.

The Rev. Beth Brown Shugart, pastor of worship and music at Johns Creek, says officials hope to have the organ in place in about a year. The church is building a new sanctuary to house it.

The organ still has yet to be cleaned, and it's not known how much dust from the disaster got inside the organ's pipes. It's being restored at a workshop in New England.
