On-line update from Tim Hemry: "We recently rebuilt the Estey organ at First Baptist Church in Franklin PA. Same pipe work that was there plus repairs and added Pedal 8'-4' Gedeckt Flute for a better arrangement there. New EP Slider chests replace the Estey ventils. The Console was put in by ?? Oiesen (not Charles) in 19??. We used a new Syndyne system throughout."
