Database Manager on February 23, 2007:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ is in the front, left corner of the chancel. The organ was originally hand-pumped when installed, and later a Ross Island Water Engine was added. This was in operation until the congregation moved to a newly built edifice in another part of the city farther east. It is still present, but the valve has been turned-off. The feeders are still intact and operable. There are 27 gold-painted pipes en façade, of which 25 are from the Great 8' Open Diapason. The Swell 8' Violin Diapason has its bottom octave outside and behind the swell box - in front of the Pedal 16' Bourdon. The church later became the Buddhist Temple. The organ is used only rarely.
