Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- According to the 1966 OHS Handbook, the 3-sectional facade contains the first 17 pipes of the Great 8' Open Diapason as well as the first 4 pipes of the Great 4' Octave. The flat pedalboard does have radiating sharps. Key-depth adjustment screws are in the keycheeks. The organ was relocated thru the Organ Clearing House, and set-up at the Tabernacle in 1960 by volunteers. The entire job cost $87.00!
