Database Manager on August 06, 2014:

Updated through online information from Rodney J. Weed. -- This information is all based on about an hour's time spent with this instrument on July 24. 2014. The organ is well maintained and may have been moved form an earlier church building replaced by the current church building which looks newer - built since the late 50's.

Database Manager on July 29, 2014:

This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by Rodney J. Weed, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- I visited the church on July 24, 2014. I could see where the original Builder's name plate had been installed by the holes in the console. The organ has had an eight level memory added to the combination action and a 6 level +/- transposer added. I did find written in pencil on the inside of the organ on the wood of the wind reservoir "Installed by United Organ, 1961." It's possible the organ goes back farther than that. The church is a newer building probably from the 50's or 60's and the organ could have been moved from a prior church building and updated at that time.
