Database Manager on December 30, 2005:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was reportedly a used instrument, and is said to have come from a church somewhere on the Alberta, Canada plains. It was installed by three men from the Lynden church. The case is of quarter-sawn oak, and the façade contains 57 pipes in a 7-sectional display arranged: 15-3-8-5-8-3-15, which includes the first 27 pipes of the Great 8' Open Diapason. The organ was rebuilt and electrified in 1958 by Balcom and Vaughan of Seattle.
