Database Manager on October 09, 2008:

Updated through online information from Robert Holland. -- The organ was built by John T. Fort, then of Dallas, TX. and consisted of 40 ranks. Since the organ was moved from the Queensborough Baptist Church when the Willow Point location was built, some slight alterations were made, i. e., mitering of some of the larger pipes, installation of a large scale 16' Subbass in the pedal. The organ, though playable, is no longer in use. The pipework is in very good condition but the console needs some extensive renovations. The organ served very well during the time I played there.
