Updated through online information from Joe Granger. -- The organ is currently going through a major rebuild and renovation by Scott Smith Pipe Organs of Lansing, Michigan, to undo what was done in the subsequent rebuilds since 1965. 5 ranks will be added to what was originally installed in 1929, as well as extending some ranks to be available at 2 pitches. The 4 manual console is also new.
