Dakota Bennett on July 29, 2021:

Berghaus installed this new organ in Reformation Lutheran Church in 1996. This was the same year that the building was built.

In 2018, a set of Deagan chimes was added. They are located in the swell but are played from the great division at the console.

In 2020, the original blower was replaced.

As of late 2021, turbulent times and declining membership have made finding and sustaining an organist difficult. Thus, the organ sits unused, but is well maintained by memorials.

We received the most recent update for this note from Dakota Bennett on July 29, 2021.
