Database Manager on April 03, 2016:

Updated through online information from Shawn P. Keith.
With the exception of the Great Mixture III all of the pipework is original, and the pipes for the 4' Flute d'Amour are stored on-site in case future restoration is desired.

Database Manager on March 03, 2016:

This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by Andrew A. Clark, based on personal knowledge of the organ.

A blower was added to this organ replacing the original hand pumping mechanism. Also this organ was rebuilt and a 3 rank mixture added to the Great at some point. It increased it to 12 ranks. Has beautiful casework & facade.
