Updated through online information from Joseph McCabe. -- This likely was an older organ rebuilt in 1904 for the church. The pedal compass is 27 notes but there are only 17 pipes, meaning the remaining treble notes mechanically couple and are borrowed. The pipes have an older look to them than other similar Votteler Hetche organs. A couple of stenciled pipes with added new feet are behind the faced. These pipes used to be tubed off to the impost. The impost contains additional toe holes which can not be used since the upper half of the case seems to be of newer construction. From the impost down, it is very similar in construction style and molding detail to other circa 1900 GF Votteler's including the extant example at Franklin Circle Masonic Temple, Cleveland
Updated through online information from Leek Pipe Organ Company. -- The Leek Pipe Organ Company rebuilt the wind chests, installed linkages, sprayed the façade with a golden bronze and repaired wooden pedal cracked pipes. In addition Leek cleaned the organ and pipes and revoiced some pipes that had been altered from their original character. At some time, a blower was installed but scoops were removed. Additionally, some cone tuned pipes were converted to slide tuned. Additionally, the bellows have been releathered.
