Database Manager on July 30, 2015:

Updated through online information from Robert L. Booth. -- This organ was sold and restored by the Carey Organ Company/Vocalion Group section. This is a 10 rank reed organ operating on pressure. The reeds speak into qualifying tubes creating a very rich sound.
The casework is Gothic in style and mahogany. The organ will be sent to its new home in Michigan in a few months as it is in playing condition presently and can be pumped by a crank or winded electrically.
At one time this organ was owned by Wayne Leupold, organist, composer, publisher.
