Database Manager on July 06, 2008:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- This was likely a rebuild of an existing organ, but I don't know for certain. The Pedal has no independent registers, and is entirely from the Great 16' Bourdon. At a later, unknown date, and by an unknown builder/firm, the Great 8' Gamba was rescaled and revoiced to become a 4' Octave and the 8' Dulciana altered to become a 2' Fifteenth. Documented: July 1989.
