Database Manager on August 28, 2008:

Identified through information from Jack Bethards: I helped install this organ at the Episcopal Church in St. Helena, California when I was in college! Gregory Bietz bought the organ in 2007 and asked us to relocate it to his home. The organ was in excellent condition and all that was required was cleaning, minor repairs and minor revisions to fit his space.
