Database Manager on July 11, 2014:

Updated through online information from Sarah Johnson. -- Jesse Woodberry & Co. Opus 153 was installed in 1898 (the same year the church was built) and occupies a prominent position at the front of the church. It was a "stock organ� from one of the Woodberry catalogs. It closely resembles Organ Specification No. 7 from their 1901 catalog, and therefore would have cost about $1,500 when new. It was modified by the Andover Organ Company in 1971, which included the addition of the Swell Principal 2' stop.
