Roland Rutz on October 29, 2020:

The organ was renovated by the Hendrickson Organ Co. in 2000, and assigned opus number 96. I examined the instrument yesterday [2020-10-28]. Tonally it has not been changed. They re-leathered it, cleaned it, painted the facade, replaced trackers. The basic instrument is complete as installed in 1919.
