David Engen on May 18, 2021:

Following a fire in the right chamber (1950's?), Moller replaced chests and pipes on the right side only. Some of these pipes as well as original Skinner pipes were retained in the Dobson organ. The Rohrflute chest and a small reservoir became a voicing machine for Grandall & Engen LLC Organbuilders after the organ was removed.
