This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by James R. Stettner, using information found in A church pamphlet about the organ history.
From extant photos of the organ we know that the organ was free-standing and encased at the front of the room. The 5-sectional, stenciled facade contained 33 pipes arranged: 5-5-13-5-5. The keydesk was attached and projecting with drawknobs in terraced stopjambs.
