Database Manager on May 18, 2014:

Updated through online information from John R Durgan. -- I contacted the church regarding this organ as I have a special interest in it. The original organ was donated to the Church by my Great Grand Mother Phoebe S. Durgan in 1927 in memory of her husband.
The organ is still in regular use, and was modified in 1978 by the addition of a trumpet rank, and a new replacement console built by Klann.
