This instrument was installed in the newly built church building (1913) and dedicated on May 31, 1914. The only alterations to the organ have been the installation of an electric blower (1921) replacing a Ross Water Motor and the Trumpet stop, which was added in 1991 at the time of the restoration of the instrument. -- Information provided by Carl Schwartz
