Database Manager on April 21, 2008:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- This organ was originally built by WurliTzer for the Novelty Theatre in Winfield. It was a Style 109 with 3 ranks: Bourdon/Flute (85 pipes), Salicional (73 pipes), and Vox Humana (61 pipes) plus chimes. The organ was moved here sometime after the theatre closed in 1929, and the percussions - excepting the chimes - were removed. The console doesn't appear to be original, but if it is - then the stoprail has been replaced.
