St. Paul's church closed in 2012, and merged with a church in Danvers, MA. The building was sold to the City of Peabody in late 2015. They are intending to renovate the building to be used as a museum, and also to retain the organ. D. Belben , former curator.

Updated through on-line information from don belben. -- At some point before 1972 the Williams Co. moved to Greenland, NH as indicated on the console plaque.
Identified through on-line information from don belben. -- The organ is a rebuild of the 1914 Hutchings 8 rank instrument, with a new console from a supply house. The Maas-Rowe chimes were retained. About the same time as the rebuild by Williams, another firm repitched the Sw Aeolne 8 to be a Prestant 2'. They also moved the Sw. Violina 4 to the Great, and loudened it to become a Principal 4', now giving the Great 2 ranks (and 3 borrows). In 2004-5 the Bishop Organ Co. installed a Cornopean 8' on the Swell using pipes from a former Frazee organ in Amesbury, MA and a unit wind chest from Aeolian Skinner. These pipes are quite appropriate as are marked with the initials of Fred White, who also voiced E Skinner reed ranks. Ca. 2003 a rebuilt reservoir was added to the Great to help with wind pressure problems, as the entire organ previously had only one reservoir.
