Builder: Barton Organs, 1928
Manuals: 2
Ranks: 5
Action: Electropneumatic

Notes: From OHS Pipe Organ Database: The instrument was relocated at an unknown time to Cresco Methodist Church, Cresco, Iowa. In 1992, it was acquired by the River City Theatre Organ Society (RCTOS) and was moved to an airplane hanger at Durand Sky Ranch, Omaha, Nebraska, where it was transformed back into a theatre organ. Several tuned percussions, four ranks of pipes, and a new combination action were added. Col. Jack Moelmann, who was stationed at Oufitt Air Force Base in Omaha, was involved with the installation and played the dedication concert on Sunday, September 21, 1992. Following the death of Bill Durand, the organ was sold to Merl Core, an RCTOS member, for installation in his residence in Omaha.
