Notes: From the church history...this organ was installed in 1910 at a cost of $10,000. It was entirely remodeled in 1950 at a cost of $8,000. Some of the casework from this early instrument was reused in a subsequent Casavant organ installed in 1980 in a new building. William Dunklin and Organ Historical Society as of 2015.
