Database Manager on May 01, 2007:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The parish suffered a fire on August 3, 1997. The pipes were subsequently removed and washed by Stettner Pipe Organs of Seattle and then stored. When the church was restored, the organ was re-piped.

Database Manager on October 25, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the addition of a 73-pipe, 16'/8' Trompette to the Swell and the addition of an exposed Positiv of 5 registers, 5 speaking stops, and 7 ranks. The original, twin, divided cases remain, and the Positiv was placed cantilevered off the rear gallery directly behind the console - which remains centered with the organist facing the rose window. The additions were done by Möller rep. Harold Curryer of Spokane, Washington.
