Database Manager on November 09, 2013:

Updated through online information from Lanny Hochhalter. -- This instrument started as a residence organ assembled from used pipework by Thomas Noveske. When Tom died his wife Doris donated the incomplete organ to St. Anne's. Doris and C.R. "Bob" Lewis completed and installed the organ in the 1990's. The console originally came from the 1929 Reuter organ (opus 327) at First United Methodist Church, Ashland, Oregon.
