This is a new home for an organ that was altered when it was moved from another location.
Identified by Benjamin Clark, who maintains the organ.
I purchased the organ in 2018 from a private residence in Wichita, KS. Having undergone tonal and mechanical alterations in its past, it is currently undergoing restoration to a more original state.
