Database Manager on March 14, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This rebuild was a straight electrification of the existing 1918 Kilgen with the only augmentation being the unification of the original Sw. 8' Stopped Diapason to speak at 16', 8' 4', 2-2/3' and 2' pitches.
