Database Manager on June 29, 2010:

Updated through on-line information from Brent Stull. -- The organ originally had a 32' Contre Violone in the pedal division which was ruined by heat and unstable support in storage. Quimby Pipe Organ Co. installed a 32' Bourdon; however, the stop knob still reads "Contre Violone." Michael Quimby suggested, when the organ was installed in the church, increasing the wind pressures of all divisions, and scaling up the flue choruses of the great and pedal divisions. This never occurred, and the church has since lost interest in traditional music and the pipe organ. The piano is now a favorite with the "director of music" and the pastor.
