The organ was electrified at an unknown date. In 1974, Dan Garland of Texas refurbished the instrument retaining the original console. The Choir division was replaced with a Positiv division and some other rescaling was done. Dan Garland replaced the original Kimball console with a new Schantz console in 1985.
