Database Manager on May 30, 2007:

Identified through on-line information from David P. Rankin. -- I oversaw the removal of the organ and am re-assembling the instrument. The organ was saved from the dump in Evergreen Colorado by Loren Dees of Ellsworth, Kansas in 1988 and restored to original condition over the next several years. Was moved to this location in 2007. The organ was played in Evergreen by Rosemary Spaun during the 1930s or 1940s. She is now an Ellsworth resident and will play part of the re-dedication in September 2007. She will be 90 years old.
