Congregation Moved to new location in 1903 and Murray Harris rebuilt, enlarged and relocated the organ to the new site; eventually moved to the present location in 1930; restoration by Kilgen in 1949, with very minor tonal changes; there have been a number of subsequent renovations since that time.
