Database Manager on November 29, 2014:

Altered and relocated existing organ. Identified by Shawn P. Keith, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- This organ is based on a II/11 W.W. Kimball built in 1904 and stored in a warehouse from at least 1957 until 1998. The original tubular-pneumatic Kimball main chests were converted to electric action, six ranks of surviving Kimball pipework were augmented with five ranks of ca. 1920 M.P. Moller pipework, revoiced in a German tonal scheme with an American accent. Three reeds from a 1958 M.P. Moller were used to expand the resources, and a Proteus sound module installed for the MIDI system.
