Database Manager on January 11, 2010:

Updated through online information from John Gouwens. -- The organ was "rebuilt" by Robert David (then of Chicago) around 1980. Electrical connections were re-done using Peterson equipment (apparently secondhand). There are only 12 ranks of pipes, but the acoustics are very nice. Organ pipes are centered in second gallery (Polish Catholic church!). How much pipework is original is unknown. No builder name plate survives, so can't even confirm it was originally a Möller. Despite its numerous limitations, the organ projects VERY well into the room, and is up to the task of leading hymns, etc.
