The Dream Theatre originally had a 2/5 Kimball installed in 1925. Harold Knox was a staff organist in 1927.
 
The instrument was later moved in 1946 to St. James Episcopal Church (also in Sedro-Woolley) by Walter D. Price of Bellingham. According to Jeff Fox, some of Mr. Price's handwriting is on a tag board. The console still retains all of its pistons and toe pedals.
 
According to Jim Stettner, there is a three-button expression control switch located atop the Accomp manual right keycheek. The top button when pressed controlled the Stage Expression. The bottom button controlled the Theatre Expression. And both buttons could be pressed simultaneously for dual control. A middle button labeled "R" [for Release] cancels the other two buttons.
