Database Manager on May 07, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was in a front gallery. It was free-standing and encased with a seven-sectional facade containng 43 pipes arranged: 7-5-7-5-7-5-7. The outer flats of seven were pipes of the Pedal 16' Double Open [wood]. These led to two tall flats of five pipes each from the Great 16' Open Diapason. Leading inward were a flat of seven pipes on each side with a final central tower of five pipes in the center. The central flats and tower contained pipes from the Great 16' and 8' Open Diapasons. The console had drawknobs in terraces on both sides, and what looked like German "Freie Kombination" above the drawknobs...but above the level of the Swell manual. The couplers were all located on rocking tablets over the Swell manual. The music rack featured a lyre in the center of it. The organ survived intact until 1946 when it was electrified by Balcom and Vaughan of Seattle. But it was left tonally unaltered with original pipes and chests.
