Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was a rebuild, electrification, and enlargement of the existing 1854 (?) Odell. A new chancel organ was added in twin cases on the front wall of the church at gallery level. The Chancel divisions were replaced by E.M. Skinner in 1925, and a new console was provided.
