William Dunklin on August 11, 2022:

The organ was originally installed on the building axis with entrances into the nave on either side of the organ. A new narthex was built circa 1985 and entrance to the nave was reconfigured. The entrance is now on the building centerline with the organ divded left and right.

Please note this room seats approximately 400 with a very tall ceiling and yet this organ does not have an 8 foot Principal.
