Database Manager on June 05, 2008:

Updated through online information from Stephen Hall. -- St. Matthew's building was begun in 1892 and completed in 1916. It is in English Gothic style with stone walls and vaulted wooden roof. At an elevation of 7,165 feet above sea level, it is the highest Episcopal Cathedral in the United States. The elevation required some revoicing after the organ was installed by Skinner in 1926. The Swell organ is currently (June 2008) undergoing renovation by Morel & Associates of Denver, the remainder of the organ is still in regular service.
