Notes: The organ was moved to the United Methodist Church of Huntington Park (LA) in the 1960s. The Swell, Choir and Pedal are in original condition. Changes were made to the Great Diapason chorus, including discarding the 1st Open Diapason and adding upperwork in an attempt to 'brighten it up. The organ has not been maintained and is in need of renovation/restoration.
