Database Manager on June 21, 2007:

Updated through on-line information from Wayne Hatwich. -- This organ is in the parish church where I grew up as a child, so I know it well. For many years, the mechanical action was very stiff. This was alleviated in the late 1990s when a Dobson Organ technician discovered and removed an original action protecting packing board screwed in place for shipping that had not been removed upon installation in 1929. The organ is still used every Sunday. -- Manual stops are divided - treble/bass at middle C. Pedalboard is flat, non-AGO, 30 keys.
