Database Manager on February 09, 2015:

Updated through online information from steve bartley. -- The room is circular, but the pews and furnishings are arranged in a front-back layout as if the room was square or rectangle . The pipes and all mechanism sit on an elevated platform at the rear of the room, while the console is in a side alcove.
The organ is occasionally used, and receives little regular maintenance. There is no enclosure. The pipes, though under scaled for the room, suffer most from the acoustical popcorn application to the upper walls and the vast amount of vertical wood slats which make up much of the interior.
