Database Manager on September 17, 2008:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Cost of the organ was $1,800.00. The organ is in a chamber on the left side of the nave at the front - right at the crossing into the sanctuary. The unique facade is 3-sectional with 30 pipes arranged: 4-22-4. The metal pipes at the corners of the two towers of 4 pipes each have 2 mouths! The center section has upper and lower portions. The upper portion has 13 pipes steeply stepped atop a sharp triangle. The lower portion features 9 small pipes in a tri-foil in the middle of the triangle. Source: extant organ; church history.
