This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by Jim Lewis, using information found in Newport (RI) Mercury March 3, 1883.
Used an 8' Open Diapason and 4' Flute from the previous Richard Bridge organ, which was moved by Erben (after providing a new Diapason and Flute) to the ante-chapel of Grace Episcopal Church, Brooklyn, NY. The Erben organ was moved by Hook & Hastings in 1889 to Kay Chapel, Church St., in Newport.
