Database Manager on April 21, 2012:

Updated through online information from David Kraft. -- The original installation had an artiste cabinet. However the cabinet was "gutted" and made into a book case. The organ has a 21 note Deagan chime unit, and a 61 note Deagan harp unit. The organ was moved into a private residence in 1973. The current installation is also, in a basement chamber with tone chute to first floor. The primary pouches on the duplex windchest were replaced with PVC pouches recommended by MP Moller(1973). The switches were refurbished with PVC bladders. The PVC didn't last nearly as long as leather or rubberized cloth. The organ was in playable condition until 1984.Presently the organ is still waitng restoration or a new home.
