Updated through online information from Mark Bell, PhD. -- Original, mission-style building was sold to a local charitable organization ca. 1980. Organ saved and moved to LDS Third Ward Chapel nearby. Instrument in remarkable playing condition as of July 2005. No substantial repairs--including releathering--have ever been conducted. Original Austin Co. records indicate 11 ranks; however, owing to misc. borrowing the 11 stops indicated on the Austin tabs are based on only 8 ranks. (?) Every stop is a beautiful work of art--particularly the 8' Oboe on the Swell and the 8' Diapason on the Great. The console is unusually comfortable, and helpful to the player. The Great and Swell pipes are placed on separate chests, each with its own set of swell shades. Funds for the organ were raised at great sacrifice during the Depression. Here is hoping others will realize the historical and musical value of the instrument, and that the organ will stand for another 75 years.
