Database Manager on June 20, 2006:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- It seems likely that the organ was later electrified by someone. They congregation built a new church in 1967, and the existing instrument - known to contain some much older pipework - was transplanted to the new building. It was thought that this instrument might also contain some portions of an organ previously located in the Iota Theatre in Exeter. In 2005, this organ was advertised for sale. The church had hoped to sell it intact, but it was ultimately sold for parts - with portions going throughout New England and even as far away as Florida. A new Lively-Fulcher, 3-manual, 44-rank organ was installed during the summer of 2006.
