Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ cost $5,000.00 plus the old organ in trade. The organ employed Schuelke's patented membrane chest. The original reservoir was winded by three feeders pumped by an electric motor. This was later replaced with a blower. The façade pipes are handsomely stenciled.
