James R. Stettner on February 07, 2022:

This entry represents the first installation of a new pipe organ; identified from the Hinners opus list. The city listed on the opus list is Dennison.

According to an online church history, "Urland’s pipe organ was purchased in 1909 for $1,200 and is still in use." The organ was originally hand-pumped, but the history again tells us, "In 1939 the organ was electrified, before that it had been pumped by hand!" [Ed. Note: the playing action was not electrified - just the wind supply].
