Russell Meyer on September 02, 2020:

Nameplate reads Atlanta Pipe Organ Sales & Service Co. (now known as A.E. Schlueter). Casework, schwimmers, and windchests, as well as most of the pipework, appear largely to have been built by Wicks. Contains some material from a previous instrument installed in the church in 1983 by the Greenwood Pipe Organ Company: 12 Pedal Bourdon pipes, a recycled set of swell shades, possibly one or two ranks of pipes (?), and the console shell from Skinner Organ Co. opus 606 (1926). Rebuilt and enlarged by Russell Meyer & Associates 2020 (nameplate reads Meyer & Colson Associates).
