Andrew Schaeffer on August 25, 2020:

Since the church was constructed in 1906, this is obviously not the original instrument for the room. The Wicks is installed in a free-standing case, and a small grille suggests the original organ was likely installed in the west tower and spoke into the gallery.

As of 2020, the parish was linked with St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church in nearby Streator, IL.
