Wahl Organbuilders met special design and con-struction challenges for this project.

The balcony in which the organ is installed is only 8-1/2' tall, less than one inch higher than the casework crown. In addition to four ranks of upper work, into this compact case are installed a Pedal 16' and three Manual 8’s, with the Principal full length and open to low C. This is accomplished by combining casework, building frame, and pipes into one structure. The blower and bellows are also contained within the casework.

The instrument incorporates historic organ material in an effort to lower cost.

The late Alan Miller Laufman was consultant to the Parish. -- from builder's website

Updated by Steven Bartley, naming this as the source of information: Boyd's Washington City Directory 1896.
The building was erected by the Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal congregation in the late 1840s. An entry in the Washington Evening Star, 3/22/1898 pg 3 announced a new Kimball pipe organ.
Boyd's Washington City Directory for 1896 lists Ebenezer AME at O street between 27th & 28th streets NW.
