  • Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the enlargement of the existing 1889 Pilcher / 1950s Schlicker organ with additions and a new drawknob console with solid state combination aciton. Due to a burst pipe from a sprinkler system system, most of the 1982 work had to be repeated in 1986. (Database Manager. May 24, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from John Igoe. -- Feb 2012 article mentions a recital to celebrate the addition of "trumpet pipes" (Database Manager. February 12, 2012)
