Database Manager on June 23, 2011:

Identified through on-line information from Eric Anderson. -- W.W.Laws installed this organ using chassis and chests from a ca. 1880 tracker, various pipework, and his Austin style console. It's possible, but not certain, that the original organ was by Hutchings.
