Database Manager on July 18, 2012:

Identified through online information from Josh Popson. -- Rebuild of existing Austin Organ. The Organ was damaged by fire on December 18, 1995 when the sanctuary caught fire. The Organ was restored and on Sunday October 12, 1997, it was rededicated and a Organ recital was held by Paul Staley at 3:30PM. Mr. Staley is an accomplished Organist and Choir Director from the buffalo area. He was responsible for the tonal work on our organ from Schlicker Organ of Buffalo, the builders. The Organ was rebuilt by reworking pipes damaged in the fire, by using new pipes, and the console from a similar organ in Pittsburgh, PA. In essence, the organ is still an Austin Organ but it was rebuilt by Schlicker.
