The Jarman Memorial Organ

The William Jackson Jarman Memorial Organ was installed in 1982 and was the gift of Clementine Miller Tangeman.  Built by the Holtkamp Organ Company of Cleveland, Ohio, it is a 47-rank mechanical action instrument with three manuals and pedal.  It is encased in the rear gallery and frames a large Tiffany window with pedal towers on each side; the Great is in front of the two enclosed divisions in the center, and the detached console is below.
