Database Manager on December 28, 2015:

Updated through online information from Harold Ulmer.
this organ is located at Asbury United Methodist Church - same address - the Presbyterian church name has always been incorrect in the database. This organ has been rewired with new combination action and proposed specification enhanced according to original aeolian skinner specifications - organ has been raised out of pit and is now on same level as choir loft.

organ is maintained by SDG Pipe Organs of Millersville, PA. Proposed specification developed in conjunction with Jonathan Ambrosino. With the exception of 4 discreet digital readouts in the nameboard, all controls are mounted in a drawer under the right jamb.
