Notes

  • This describes a rebuild of an existing organ.
    Identified by Andrew Clark
    In 1979, Prosper Road Christian Reformed Church of Falmouth Michigan built an addittion onto the building where the chancel of the original sanctuary and pipe organ was located. The new addition serves as their Narthex, fellowship hall, offices, and Sunday school rooms.

    That same year, the sanctuary seating was turned around and the former rear of sanctuary became the chancel area.

    C.V. Barden Company, moved and rebuilt the Kilgen pipe organ and placed it into the former Narthex of the church, directly below the bell tower. It appears that C.V. Barden supplied another console on hand to replace the orginal Kilgen console. (Database Manager. April 9, 2019)
  • Updated by Andrew A. Clark, who has heard or played the organ.
