Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was a "new" organ created from the merger of two Lutheran churches and their instruments: 1) Christ Lutheran Free and its 1948 Balcom and Vaughan (Op. 456); and 2) Bethany Lutheran (Fairview) and its used, 1919 W.W. Kimball (Op. 6515). The console is retained from the Christ Lutheran Free organ as is the Swell pipework and chest. The Great is from the Bethany Lutheran Kimball.We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on April 09, 2020.
