Leonard Vernon had parts from several instruments including a two-manual Morton from the Antlers (Indian) Theatre in Roseburg, Oregon. Mr. Vernon acquired the organ from the Roseburg Methodist Church after a fire nearly destroyed the church. Parts from the 2/4 Kilgen originally installed in Portland's Capitol Theatre were also included. The Kilgen was previously owned by Ted Marks of Portland.
The organ was sold in 2001 to Walter & Merlyn Johnson of Tacoma.
