Database Manager on October 12, 2007:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The church acquired this used 1924 Wurlitzer to replace a failing electronic. Its original church home and subsequent homes are not yet known. It was purchased for $7,500.00 and arrived at the church in 1981. It was not first heard until 1986 at which time 5 of the 7 ranks were playing. The 6th rank - a Dulciana - was installed but not yet wired-in. A Wurlitzer Trumpet was finally added 20 years later in 2006 - finally completing the 7 ranks. This was installed by the Miller Organ Co. of Virginia City, NV.
