Database Manager on April 15, 2015:

An original installation. Identified by steve bartley, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- The organ resides in the Chapel, utilizing the elaborate case front from a previous instrument. Within the outer most part of the case, is the Great unit Principal, Open Flute, and Mixture. Further back, in a room just outside the chapel, is an enclosed section containing a Unit 16-2 Rohrflute, 8-4 Gemshorn, Gems Celeste, 2 Octavin, and 16-8 Trompette. The main windchests are of electro-mechanical design and with many of the pipes appear to date from the 1960s. A new Trompette and the wood bass pipes of the Rohrflute, and console are much newer. The owners believe that the original organ was a small Moller.
