Database Manager on March 22, 2013:

Updated through online information from Robert Holland. -- This organ is located in the recital hall adjacent to the music buiding at Northwestern State University. When I was a student at the university, this organ nor the recital hall were there. The organ is centrally located on the stage with the 16' Pedal Princial and 16' Quintaten exposed above the rear of the stage. I have not played the organ but have heard it and it is still used for recital purposed and vocal accompaniment.
