    The church is an Akron plan sanctuary, with a balcony extending around two walls. The organ is 
    installed in an alcove in the corner opposite the balcony. With the exception of the Great Open 
    Diapason and the two pedal ranks, the organ is enclosed in a general swell. The pedale action was 
    tubular originally, but has been altered to electropneumatic in recent years by Robert Dommer. The 
    Melodia, Flute d'Amour, Stop'd Diapason and all three Bourdons are presumably of wood. while the 
    rest is metal. The Aeoline takes its bottom octave from the Salicional and is currently tuned sharp 
    to function as a celeste. This organ is an almost-exact sister to the one that visited on the 1984 
    OHS National Convention in Chicago and [which] was recently relocated to Luther Memorial Church in 
    Madison, Wisconsin. The only differences appear to be that the pedal key action in the Madison 
    organ is tracker, and the divided Bourdon is on the Great instead of the Swell.
