  • There in 1997 (James Cook. July 3, 2008)
  • In 1997, Kegg Pipe Organ Co. installed a new 3m console, and connected their new console control system into the existing Cannarsa system. After a significant lightning strike in 2017, Kegg returned to replace the damaged Cannarsa control system with their own. (Steven E. Lawson. July 12, 2017)
