Database Manager on September 04, 2005:

On-line update from John Kovach -- The cornerstone to LeMans was laid in 1924 and completed in the fall of 1925. The organ was valued at that time at $12,000 and was the gift of Gabriella Casanare and her sister Julia (both from Altoona, PA). As far as I can tell, the organ has not been in operating condition since September of 1982. At that time, it was estimated that the cost to repair it would come to $1500.
