Summary: 29 ranks, 25 stopsLocation: Dating from 1864, Waller Hall is the oldest college building in Oregon! Cone Chapel, located on the second floor is now used for religious services, teaching, practice, and concert events.
Inspiration: The authentic 1864 setting inspired a historic casework style, such as may have been seen in early America, and reminiscent of the work of Thomas Appleton, a builder from early New England.
Casework: Poplar wood, painted to match wall and trim colors. Facade towers proportioned to harmonize with the dimensions of the stained glass windows. Pipes of 70% polished tin reflect the colors of the room. Hand carved pipe shades highlighted with gold provide a delightful "jewel-box" appearance.
