Database Manager on November 28, 2012:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This is a Moller 'Portable' with a separate console rather than an attached keydesk. The organ has been rebuilt by Hopper Piano and Organ Company of Raleigh, NC and Burton Tidwell LLC. An Allen console now controls the organ with added electronic voices. The pipework is no longer expressive. The dummy pipe facade of the Moller has been replaced with two small towers of speaking pipes. Uncertain how much of the Moller pipework actually remains.
