Database Manager on November 15, 2013:

This is a rebuild of an existing organ. Identified by Rodney J. Weed, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- The original organ was possibly a Wangerin out of Milwaukee. The rebuild in the 1980s was by an unidentified Milwaukee builder. It included the addition of several new Ranks mounted on the back wall between the Great and Swell chamber. All the pipes of the Great were made unenclosed even though several ranks remained in what had been an enclosed great Chamber. A new console was installed.
