  • Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was reportedly installed in a single chamber with a gold dummy pipe facade. The organ was rebuilt for the new edifice by Balcom and Vaughan with a new console and new windchests. Some tonal changes were made as well. Disposition of the H-V console is unknown. The H-V windchests were used by Balcom and Vaughan for another project. (Database Manager. February 3, 2009)
