Database Manager on February 21, 2016:

Updated through online information from Alan Binger.
Modifications were done by a volunteer group. The switching system and C/A was stripped out and replaced with a solid state / microprocessor based system (Opus_Two). The console was modified - knobs in side jambs with rocker tablets on nameboard for couplers.
The Great 8' Principal was moved to the Swell and the 8' Diapason from the defunct Moller in the old church was swapped in. The Swell reeds were moved to a new windchest to accommodate the Principal on the main windchest.
