Database Manager on May 11, 2013:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. This is a rebuild of an existing organ. Identified by James R. Stettner, based on information from personal research into the history of organs in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

The Estey case and pipes were [mostly] retained. The Great stoplist was unaltered excepting that a new 8' Open Diapason replaced the original - which was transposed to the Pedal at 8' & 4' pitches. The Swell 4' Harmonic Flute was replaced with a new 8' Salicional, and the original 8' Keraulophon became a Voix Celeste. While the console stop control said 4' Harmonic Flute, the pipes playing were the original Johnson 4' Fugara.
