According to Jeffrey Dexter on a Nov. 15, 2019 Facebook post to 'Wisconsin Organ Scene', ..the organ in question has a Schantz console, a swell frame, a Trompette, and a Zephyr blower. This was provided to a Fred Fuller - who was a known service provider in the area. The organ is a 5-rank unit organ of unknown provenance.
