Database Manager on March 01, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the transplanting of the existing 190? Kimball from the old church to the new edifice. The sides of the case must have had 4 pipes in them, because there are two added "wings" - one added to either side of the original case in the new location. The church was later renamed Staub Mem. Congregational in honor of their founding Swiss pastor, Rev. J.J. Staub. The little Kimball was later replaced with a used, 1913 3-manual T-P Kimball from the Columbia Theatre in Portland. Subsequent disposition of the little Kimball is unknown. The congregation has long since disbanded.
