Database Manager on August 16, 2009:

The organ in Grace Church was built by M.P. Möller of Hagerstown, Md., for an unknown location and was donated to the church at some point. Known as the "Sputnik" model (named for the 1957 Soviet satellite), the organ has but one manual to control four stops and two ranks of pipes. Meloni & Farrier of Port Chester, N.Y. was contracted to repair pipes that had been damaged by the movers. In 2013, Meloni & Farrier added a 20-note pedalboard that is permanently connected to the manual.
