Uncle John's Pipe Organ

My Uncle John's organ. Saved from a old Baptist church in Kansas. Console and wood pipes are from the original organ. The metal pipes were custom made in Wertenberg, Germany. Pipe organ is 13 ranks, prepared for 20.

9 ranks above the console, 3 metal ranks to the left of the conlsole, and 1 rank of wooden pipes for the pedals.

The ceiling had to be raised 4 feet to accomodate the longest pipes.
