Database Manager on August 01, 2015:

Updated through online information from Sean Haley. -- The organ is in fair condition. Unfortunately it lacks casework and has simple plywood around the key desk topped by glass to acoustically shield the organist. Offset action for the Pedal 16' Bourdon is pneumatic as are the offsets of the 8' Diapason.
