This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ.
Identified by J. A. Hefner, listing conversations with this person as the source of the information: Aaron M. Tellers (Tellers Organ Co.) and William Dunklin postcard.
This organ is visible in a postcard issued on behalf of Felgemaker [courtesy William Dunklin], showing a substantial instrument with many facade pipes. However, there is a photo of a smaller, Pilcher-esque organ also attributed to the same church [nothing else is known about it], though the interior is vastly different [perhaps the church was remodeled extensively, and the Felgemaker was acquired as part of it].
The stop specification of ABF 990 is as follows [courtesy Aaron Tellers]:
- Great -
Diapason 8'
