It was contracted in 1900, but not completed and installed until 1902. When the German-speaking congregation disbanded in 1995, the organ was removed by Patrick J. Murphy & Assoc. of Stowe, PA. and stored at their facility. It was purchased by Trinity United Methodist in 2003 for $5000.00 “as is.” The organ was retrieved by Stan Goddard and Beth Mackey of the church, and driven across country. It was reassembled in 2003-04 by Stan Goddard and Harry Takata with assistance by Monroe, WA. organ builder Clinton B. Meadway. The organ is free-standing and encased with an attached, projecting keydesk – the cover of which opens to make a music rack. The stops are drawknobs in terraced jambs. The Swell drawknob heads are brown. The Great drawknob heads are black. And the Pedal drawknob, Pedal Check,and Bellows Signal are light-colored wood. The engraved inserts are replacements since the originals were badly worn, faded, and damaged. Some of the pipework also appears not to be original...and has characteristics of Kimball pipework. The 3-sectional stenciled facade contains 19 pipes of the Great 8 ft. Open Diapason arranged: 3 – 13 – 3. The two sets of 3 pipes are stopped wood and notes 1 – 6. The remaining 13 facade pipes are open zinc. The 8 ft. Dulciana is grooved to the 8 ft. Melodia for its bottom octave. On the Swell, the 8' Salicional was badly damaged. The first 12 pipes are capped metal quintadena basses and were retained. But it is a replacement set from tenor C. The 8 ft. Violin Diapason is grooved to the 8' Stop'd Diapason for its bottom octave. The 4 ft. Flute is a Harmonic Flute from middle C. The Pedal 16 ft. Bourdon is a the back of the organ on a chest in two rows. The outer set faces outward. The inner set faces inward.
