The contract was signed in 1924 and the organ was probably built in Westfield. The building was sold in 1975 to an independent Pentecostal group. Around 10 to 15 years after that, the organ was installed by Rick Darrow in a Catholic Church in South Dakota. Some additions were made at that time and the Great Diapason chorus was reworked and completed.
