Completion of the = organ is expected in 10-12 weeks. The original organ was Op.1628 of the Austin Organ Company, Hartford, CT, built in 1928. Further work was done to the instrument by Austin Organs, Inc. in 1948 and also in the 60's. The = current work is being carried out by John-Paul Buzard, Organbuilders of Champaign, = IL.   Here is the address:   http://www.webphotos.iwon.com/list_photos.asp?mi=3D3&smi=3D1&a=3D83731   Hope you enjoy it.
