Database Manager on July 28, 2007:

Updated through online information from Douglas W. Craw. -- This organ was given to the congregation in part by Herman Schlicker, a member of the congregation. The organ received special attention while being built and is an excellent example of Schlicker's tonal design concepts at that time in the history of the Schlicker Organ Co., having been designed by Herman Schlicker himself.
