Database Manager on September 23, 2009:

Identified through online information from Bryan Dunnewald. -- The original organ was a 3 rank Wurlitzer built for the Pioneer Theatre in Lamar, Colorado. It was installed in the church by Fred Meunier in the early 1950s. We rebuilt the organ with additions in 1988, as part of the church's 50th anniversary. The only original Wurlitzer parts remaining in the organ are the console and the the lower 24 notes or so of the 16' Bourdon. The only new pipes were the low notes of the 8' Principal (in the case), the 4' Octave, 2 2/3, and Tierce. All of the other pipes were recycled from older organs.
