Updated by Marian Ruhl Metson, who has heard or played the organ. Munetaka Yokota added a Trompete 8\' to Manual I with an extension to the pedal and and a Quint 1 1/3 to Manual II in 2004. These stops were dedicated in a recital played by Paul Tegels of PLU, Tacoma WA on September 26, 2004

Database Manager on November 12, 2007:

Updated through on-line information from Eric Mackensen. -- The organ is unique in that it is the first parish organ to be completely built on-site in perhaps three centuries. The congregation built a workshop onsite (later converted to classrooms) Every element was created here including the pouring and manufacturing of pipes.
