Database Manager on October 18, 2006:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is virtually original, with the only change being an addition when the organ was still in its original home: Mercer Island Presbyterian Church on Mercer Island, Washington. An unidentified person or firm added a derived II Rausch Pfeife to the Pedal division - increasing the number of speaking stops from the original 17 to the present 18. All other stops remained original.
