From Mark Neuharth, church organist -

In 1962, a new Möller console was installed by Eugene Doutt of Watertown, SD.

In 1986, the organ was rebuilt and the “new” organ dedicated on September 21, 1986. The end result was a pipe organ of 2,031 pipes, 872 of which are from the original Hall organ and 1,159 new ones. Some of the pipes came from noted craftsmen in Europe, including West Germany and Holland. The three-manual Möller console was kept.
