  • Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Originally built for Mt. Carmel Lutheran in Calumet, MI. In 1964, Mt. Carmel merged with Bethlehem Lutheran to form Faith Lutheran. The organ was relocated to the Dollar Bay, MI residence of former Mt. Carmel pastor, Rev. John Simonson. In 2001, the family donated the organ to the Keweenaw Heritage Center (formerly, St. Anne's) where it was temporarily erected in the chancel of the former church pending restoration of the rear gallery. It has since been relocated to the restored gallery and funds are presently being raised for the organ's restoration. Housed in a 3-sectional case with 25 facade pipes arranged: 5-15-5. (Database Manager. November 8, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- Case of oak. Couplers actuated by "piston knobs" placed in the manual keyslips. Fixed combination foot trundles: Great Piano & Great Forte. No reed registers. (Database Manager. November 24, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from Paul R Marchesano. -- The installation in the organ gallery and restoration of the organ were completed in 2008, following the temporary re-erection of the organ in the Chancel in 2001. (Database Manager. December 19, 2008)
