Database Manager on January 26, 2009:

Identified through on-line information from Stephen Brown. -- This is a five-rank Kimball organ originally in The First Baptist Church in Pleasantville, New Jersey. The console and switching were destroyed by the church though I have the stop rail. The swell shades remained in the church. I do everything else. I have it connected to a three rank Organcraft originally purchased by The University of West Virginia. It is connected using Opus-Two Organ Control System
