Cost $600. Bottom 12 notes of the Violin 8' are grooved from the Gedackt. The 15th is reversible from a knee lever. OH 1976 attributes the organ to Krauss, confusing it with an Andrew Krauss organ that was built in 1837 for Christ Church, Tulpehocken (near Stouchburg). Restored 1988 by Columbia Organ Works.
