Database Manager on March 03, 2015:

Updated through online information from Scot Huntington. -- This restoration project was a joint collaborative effort between Heustis & Associates of Ladnor, B.C. and S.L. Huntington & Co. of Stonington, CT. Internal evidence indicates the organ was a later rebuild and enlargement by Koehnken & Grimm, of an early Koehnken & Co. or Charles Schwab one-manual instrument.
