Dedication concert November 15[?], 1904, by Mrs. Amy Oberlin, organist of the First Methodist Church [Columbia] -- Intelligencer Journal (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) · 16 Nov 1904, Wed · Page 4
Updated through online information from Christopher Howerter. -- I know a parishioner that lives next to the church and I've played the instrument. They have a contract with the Columbia Organ Works to refurbish the instrument and it should be done by next September. The only sort of combination action is a set of fixed push down toe studs that mechanically push out the stops for the manuals only. There are two for each manual (a swell piano and forte, and a great piano and forte), which are to the left of the swell pedal. The pedal does not have mechanical stop actions, which is different from the manuals. There is also a toe stud on the right of the swell pedal that does not work. The swell pedal is also mechanical.
Status Note: There 1991.
