Action: Mechanical

Notes: Since its purchase in 1975 by Michael Barone, this instrument has been variously located at First United Methodist Church in Saint Cloud (1975-1982), then Lake Harriet Methodist Church, Minneapolis (1982-1996), then briefly as a display item in the Westfield Center's touring exhibit, Festival Organ, housed at the Science Museum of Minnesota in Saint Paul (winter/spring 1997). After that it went on loan to the Episcopal Church of St. Paul on the Hill in Saint Paul (1997-2003), then to the Lady Chapel of the Church of St. Louis, King of France in Saint Paul (2003-2005), and most recently (winter 2006) was relocated to the chancel of Central Presbyterian in St. Paul.

Mechanical note: Some of the tuning is done from the back. The case panel significantly shades the back ranks (it should be split horizontally so the lower portion stays in place for tuning). The panel has been left off at Central Presbyterian for this reason.
