Database Manager on February 15, 2009:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- This is a contemporary, stock model stock "Double Artiste". Both the Swell and Great are expressive and housed in free-standing enclosures. These enclosures are housed in a large chamber, side-by-side, on the front, left side of the sanctuary. The Great II-III Mixture is actually II-III-II-I in composition. The Möller was sold and installed by Möller Rep. Harold Curryer of Spokane, Washington, and replaced an Estey in the former edifice when both were lost to fire. Documented October 5, 1996.
