Notes

  • Identified through online information from Michael Freeman. -- Organ was relocated to present location in 1990 by The Range Organ Company of Dallas. The organ has the original Möller name plate on the console which also looks to be original as well. The only addition made to the organ was an 8' Festival Trumpet on high pressure that is vertical inside the chamber with the great division. (Database Manager. October 20, 2009)
