Notes

  • Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the electrification of the church's existing Bennett pipe organ, Op. 259, 1911. No tonal changes were made. The original attached keydesk was replaced with a Klann console. In 1986, the church dicovered structural flaws, and the building was razed. The organ was removed and reinstalled in the new edifice on the same site. A new Ventus blower was also added. (Database Manager. January 9, 2006)
  • Updated through online information from Taylor Giese. -- I practice at this organ for several hours everyday of the week. The Organ pipes sit at the front of the sanctuary, while the Console sits to the right. The system has been updated from pneumatic action to an Electric, though this looks to have been done a while ago now. Organ is in good working condition. (Database Manager. October 8, 2012) (James Stettner. September 7, 2019)
