Database Manager on May 24, 2014:

Electrification and new console for the existing organ. Identified by Rodney J. Weed, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- The original organ was a 6 rank Tracker organ with the console attached to the front of the organ. You can still see the panels covering the opening for the original Tracker Keydesk. You can also see the outline on the floor of where the pedal board was. At some time (Date unknown) The six ranks were electrified and heavily unified to produce an organ of many stop choices for the organist from just six ranks. The organ has mutations, mixtures, and pipes up to the 1' pitch. The organ does need some work and the church has decided they do not want to pay for any work on the organ and have purchased a Yamaha Clavinova which they have placed in the front of the church and now use in place of the organ up in the rear Gallery.
