Database Manager on February 16, 2013:

Updated through online information from David M Storey. -- Present bench, keydesk and pedalboard are from the Niemann organ (no longer extant) that was in the former 14 Holy Martyrs Catholic Church in Baltimore. The manual keyboards were newly made for electric actions. The combination action is a simple solid state system. All the original mechanical key and stop actions are lost.
