Database Manager on April 28, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is in divided chambers in the chancel. The Great and choir are in the chamber on the right occupied by the former ca. 1907 Kimball. The Choir chest is located over the Great chest. The Swell and independent Pedal 16' Bourdon are in the left chamber. The organ is packed into the space very tightly, and has aptly been nicknamed "The Impacted Möller." The console is placed under the Swell grille with the organist facing across the chancel - congregation to their right.
