Jim Stettner on August 08, 2021:

The organ was sold to private party. The owner's son - Daniel Boeringer - was kind enough to contact the new owner in 2017 and ask if he would consent to listing the organs' new location on the Database. No reply was received.

Database Manager on June 01, 2015:

Identified by James R. Stettner, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- Altered and relocated existing organ. One manual, four ranks: Gedackt 8’, Rohrflöte 4’, Spitzflöte 2’, Twelfth 2-2/3’. Based on research at the Organ Historical Society, we believe that the organ was formerly at Ascension & St. Agnes Episcopal Church in Washington DC, although we have not found anyone there who remembers it.

It has 56 notes with tracker action. Stops divide treble and bass. 120V blower lives in the base of cabinet. The organ is 66” wide, 34” deep, and stands 92” high at the tallest pipe.
