Notes

  • Identified by Jeff Scofield through information in Möller factory documents. (Database Manager. September 22, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. (Database Manager. March 14, 2011)
  • Updated through online information from Kristina Powers. -- The chapel was offering tours this past April for their 100th anniversary, and I inquired about the organ. I was told that it's in use but is referred to as "the calliope" because it sounds wheezy when played; needs attention. (Database Manager. October 17, 2012)
  • Updated through online information from Robert Ward. -- Organ is in regular use during the summer months as the congregation worships in the Chapel during this time. The organ is also used for Weddings and Funerals held in the Chapel. The term "the calliope" is a nickname for this organ. However, it is in wonderful condition. (Database Manager. June 13, 2013)
