Database Manager on February 09, 2015:

Updated through online information from Jim Thompson. -- Console replaced by Visser-Rowland in 1978. Also, the stoplist shown on the church website has an addition to the pedal division outside the normal listing of 32 Principal, 32 Subbass, and 16 Principal, which may be the origin of the Wicks Chests, (Stops added by V-R?) as the indication is for 32 pipes for each of the 3 additional ranks. Rotating star Zimbelstern added in 1962.
