Database Manager on February 27, 2007:

Updated through online information from Zach Young. -- The present congregation is newly constituted and no longer uses "Memorial" in its name. The façade pipes (8' diapason) and the 16' Bourdon are tubular-pneumatic action; everything else is tracker action. The organ was renovated by Steiner in 1970. Originally hand-pumped; blower added many decades ago. The organ is maintained by Miller Pipe Organ Company, is used every Sunday, and sounds great.
