Database Manager on October 17, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This is the parish's second instrument, but the first in the new building. The old building housing another Austin (Op. 881, 1919) is now the chapel. The Austin was installed in a chamber at the front on the left wall. The console was on the right side of the chancel opposite the chamber with the organist facing the chamber - congregation to the left. The organ was removed by Marceau & Associates of Portland, Oregon in 1997 in preparation for the new Noack tracker. It was purchased by St. Hilda-St. Patrick Episcopal Church in Edmonds, Washington, and was placed in storage there. It was finally installed by parishioners in 2005-2006.
