Notes: The organ was moved to Christ Lutheran Church, Dundalk, Maryland, in 1962. The instrument's switching and relay system was converted to Peterson solid state in 1998 and is currently serviced by Myers Pipe Organ Service, Inc., who provided the stoplist and information. In 2002, the Orchestral Oboe was repaired and revoiced by Eastern Organ Pipes, Inc., Hagerstown, Maryland.
