Jim Stettner on September 03, 2020:

The Estey organ was originally built for the German Lutheran Church. This was a project of moving, electrification, and reinstallation in a single, expressive chamber at the front on the left side. The cost of this project was $3,447.90.

The organ was later tonally modified by Richard Warburton and one rank added.
