Notes: Information from John Panning (Dobson Organs): This organ has been rebuilt several times. Austin provided a new console in 1955. Kappler-Walton of Olathe, Kansas, significantly rebuilt the organ in the 1960s (new Great division, tonal changes to the other divisions). Dobson added a solo trumpet in 1988. Subsequent to my knowledge of the organ, it was "rebuilt" by Rodgers Organs. Organ Historical Society as of 2012.
