Database Manager on January 23, 2007:

Identified through online information from Craig Jaynes. -- Electrfication by Schantz of the existing Schuelke organ; primaries re-leathered 1974-5. The instrument was 'restored' (but I'm pretty sure that does not mean 'to pneumatic action') by John Muller of Croton, Ohio in 2000 or 2001 (sorry, I didn't write this down). It has new combination action and is in wonderful condition. A stunning, grand sound in a wonderfully restored period church with extremely sympathetic acoustics.
