Database Manager on March 22, 2014:

Updated through online information from Ray Smithee. -- The organ is currently not playable. An electronic is currently in use. The organ is complete intact. It was last played in 2003. Rebuilding by R. Ronald Norwood of Mobile, Alabama took place in the 70s. Exactly what was done is not clear, although a church member says it was mechanical work and the addition of the Gemshorn rank. It would appear that new stop tabs were added at that time to accommodate stops based on the Gemshorn. The console is otherwise original in appearance.
