Database Manager on June 28, 2015:

This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by William Dunklin, using information found in a vintage postcard.
A postcard circa 1915 shows a pipe organ center front. A simple, 8' display of non-polychromed pipes stands on an impost barely above the top row of choir chair backs. The Weber Stake Tabernacle was replaced by a new tabernacle in 1956 and the building torn down in 1971. Fate of the organ is unknown.
