Database Manager on July 06, 2008:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is housed in a free-standing case with a 3-sectional facade housing the Great 8' Principal. The three case arches are rounded - not gothic. The Swell is expressive in Brustwerk position with the Great overhead. All three unison couplers are hitch-down. The organ has no reed registers, and no string registers - just principals and flutes. Documented: Sept. 6, 1988.
