Database Manager on April 19, 2018:

As originally built, the organ stood in one corner of the chancel with its façade facing the congregation. At some point fairly early in its life, it was relocated to its current chambered position. In 1968, the organ was renovated by Henry Weiland, replacing most though not all of the stopknobs, redecorating the façade pipes, and making many tonal changes. The Open Diapason pipes were replaced with the Principal pipes, which were replaced with another (apparently old) set. Stops marked with a (*) are enclosed and divided at middle c; the Open Diapason and Principal are neither divided nor enclosed, nor is the pedal Bourdon. The bottom 12 pipes of the manual Bourdon are tubed off the chest and unenclosed, and both strings take their bottom octave from the Gedackt. (David Bohn)
