Database Manager on February 27, 2009:

Identified through online information from Jeff Scofield. -- Church closed in 1931 and the buildings sold to Wilshire Methodist Church; the organ was rebuilt and enlarged in 1956 with a new console as Möller Op. M-9357; by the time that fire badly damaged the organ and most of the sanctuary in 1994, the organ had grown to a 4/75. The organ was rebuilt as a 5/47 by Robert Turner in 1998, with a new console; 35 ranks are prepared-for.
