Database Manager on June 18, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is a standard stock model Moller "Portable" with a keydesk that may be slid under the windchest for moving. It was originally built for Montavilla Methodist Church in Portland, Oregon. In the 1950's, it was moved to St. Anthony's RC in that same city. It was restored for the Ravenna Presbyterian congregation by Marceau & Assoc. of Portland ca. 2000. The church was closed a short time thereafter by the Seattle Presbytery, and the congregation merged with Wallingford Presbyterian. The organ has been for sale for a couple of years. On Monday June 12, 2006, the organ was placed for sale on keyboardtrader.com by Jim Stettner for the church. It sold by Thursday, June 15 to Art Hawn of Springfield, Oregon, where it was installed in August of 2006 by Jim Stettner.
