Database Manager on August 10, 2015:

Updated through online information from Claude R Fabinyi. -- As a local organist, I visited the church in Fall of 2014 to see the organ completely neglected following its relatively recent rebuild. The church itself was struck by lightning and consequently caught fire, causing damage to the organ.
The organ was rebuilt by a company whose name escapes my memory. I can locate significantly more information on this particular organ, as my uncle was organist for nearly two decades until its closing.
