Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- As originally built, the expression mechanism would have been hitch-down, and the Pedal compass would have been 12-notes. At an unknown time in the organ's past, the original pedalboard was replaced with a 27-note pedalboard and the expression mechanism was changed to a balanced system. As installed in Mr. Stagg's home, the expression box has been removed and is safely in storage. The original Mixture and Trumpet are missing. The organ has several non-original stop labels. The bottom octave of the 8' Open Diapason is of stopped wood. Mr. Stagg also has the organ playing on slightly lower than its original pressure.
On-line update from James R. Stettner -- The organ was replaced at St. James Epis. in Dillon in the 1940s by a Moller "Artiste" that still exists. The organ was next moved to St. John's Episcopal in Townsend, Montana, and it was from here that it was acquired by Don Stagg when he was living with his family in Butte, Montana.
Status Note: There 1990.
Organ was at Episcopal Church, Dillon, MT in 1940. Later in church in Townsend, MT. Moved here from previous Stagg res. in Canada.
