  • Updated by Don Hurd, who has heard or played the organ.
    I played a recital for the conclusion of the church's 175th Anniversary year, 3/19/2017. Organ works well, but pipework has many unstable tuning issues. An appropriate sound for the magnificent room and acoustic. A must visit if you're in the area! (Database Manager. May 4, 2017)
