    NOTES
    This organ was originally built for the Parkland, Washington residence of David P. Dahl, and is
    reported to have been part of an arrangement between Glenn White and David Dahl for David joining
    Olympic Organ Builders.
    
    In 1982, Mr. Dahl later acquired a new II-manual, 11-rank organ built by Fritts & Richards as 
    their Opus 2-b at which time he sold the Olympic organ to Grace Lutheran Church for $21,000.00.
    It was slightly modified and then installed by Paul Fritts.
    
    The organ is free-standing and housed in a case of teak veneer with an attached keydesk.  There
    are no couplers.  Manual I, Manual II, and the Pedal all share one 154 channel chest.  The Manual
    II 8' Quintadena borrows its bottom 10 notes from the Manual I 8' Holzgedackt.  The Manual I 4'
    Rohrflute has 17 pipes, notes 7 - 23, in the center section of the façade.  The Pedal 8' Gedackt
    has 11 pipes, notes 3 thru 13, in the side towers of the façade.  The twelfth pipe is a dummy.
    
    Stops are registered by means of small, wooden levers in horizontal slots centered in three rows
    of three stops each over the manuals.  When a lever is positioned on the left side of the slot,
    the stop is off.  The pitch of each stop is engraved into the square, flat end of each lever.  
    The stop names are engraved on small wooden plates beneath each lever/slot. The layout is as 
    follows:
    
                   8' Quintadena             Tremolo            2' Flute
                   8' Holzgedackt         2' Principal          4' Rohrflute
                   4' Flachflute          8' Gedackt           16  Sordun
