Identified through online information from Randy Terry. -- Organ restored in 2006 by Dennis Milnar. A 2' Fifteenth was added to the great, which had no 2' stop prior, using the former chimes tab. A Cymbelstern was also added by reversible toe piston. The console retains its original Austin actions.
