Database Manager on May 02, 2011:

Updated through online information from Allan Dieball. -- I played this organ for a wedding on April 30, 2011. It seemed to be in good condition overall. A member of the parish told me that it is used regularly. It looks and sounds to me like it is in original, unaltered condition, but I do not know that for certain. A comment on a blog gives the date as 1908.
