Updated through online information from David H. Fox. -- This organ, or its successor, was replaced with another Moller just prior to December 15, 1956, when the church was heavily damaged by arson fire. A replacement 2M EP action Moller was then installed by 1959 in side chambers in the reconfigured church.
