Database Manager on August 08, 2009:

Identified through on-line information from Chad Boorsma. -- The organ includes pipes from the church's previous organ, a tracker, which served the church from ca. 1916-1952. The previous organ's facade pipes (painted with stencil work) are in the current organ's chambers, although no longer exposed. The organ only has divisional thumb pistons that also control the pedal.
