Database Manager on March 15, 2013:

Identified through online information from Pierce Dickens. -- Digital additions to existing pipe organ.

The organ has been rebuilt and enlarged significantly with digital additions twice since its installation in 1960. (The present chambers do not contain sufficient room for any additional acoustic pipes.) The Cornel Zimmer Organ Company oversaw both projects and utilized Walker components for the additions. A complete history of the instrument, present specification and photographs may be seen on the church website.
