Database Manager on October 21, 2012:

Updated through online information from T. Daniel Hancock. -- The Stopt Diapason, June 1982, reports "The organ is dated c. 1912 according to the national Extant Organs List, although it is not on the available (incomplete) Hinners opus list. The organ appears to be original to the church, as evidenced by a shipping label which can be seen pasted on the inside of the swell box, and not from the Temple Theatre as previously supposed. (Its physical appearance appears to match its surroundings, as well.)" . . . "The organ is currently unplayable as a result of vandalism several years ago to the wind trunks and the action, although there has not been any serious damage. Some pedal pipes may need regluing; simply the result of aging. Our host, Father Brennan, indicated the church's interest in returning the organ to playing condition. The church has just undergone a major and very beautiful redecorating program and the parishioner level is rebuilding."
