Rebuilt and enlarged, with new console prepared for eventual 7-stop Antiphonal on home on bottom manual; new electric pull-down slider and pallet windchests constructed for the straight manual stops, and new electropneumatic action windchests for the unit stops; a new frame and structure built behind existing case; 25 Kimball stops retained and facade stenciling restored to 1897 design.
