Database Manager on February 04, 2013:

An original installation. Identified by Ross Rieckers, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- This organ was installed in St. John's in 1926 and is one of 300 electro-pneumatic organs that the Hinners Co. built. In 1999 the organ was refurbished and upgraded to solid state. I am the current organist/music director. I was raised here and have played this instrument all my life.
