  • Identified by James R. Stettner through information from the Estey Opus List, published in The Boston Organ Club newsletter, 1973-1979. (Database Manager. August 23, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from Rick Erickson. -- Organ removed, and some components used in a rebuild of an Estey in Merrill, Wisconsin church. I made note of the specs upon my last visit to the organ (summer 1966) days before it was dispersed and replaced. I salvaged some facade pipes. (Database Manager. January 14, 2011)
