Database Manager on January 01, 2006:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is installed in the library on the 2nd floor. It is housed in two large chambers on either side at one end, and fronted by a display of large gold pipes on two sides. The original console was very lavish and ornate, but had no manuals - playing solely by rolls. It is said that Mr. Moran would go to the balcony and sit a the console, and dupe his guests into believing that he was playing. In 1937, a Kimball console replaced the original, but retained the original console's player. The residence is now a popular resort known as Rosario.
