Database Manager on February 04, 2017:

Updated by David E. Wallace, the builder.
This organ still exists in the residence of Mrs Barbara Taylor. The organ was purchased and removed from the Congregational Church in New Sharon, Maine in 1961 by Rev Donald Taylor and Stewart Shuster. The original casework of the organ was not saved.
It was rebuilt in 1967/68 by Donald Taylor and David Wallace (both of Andover Organ Co. at that time) to its present configuration. It has been in the Taylor residence since that time.
