Jim Stettner on October 12, 2020:

A photo in the Tides Institute and Museum of Art in Eastport shows a small, 1-manual organ with a 5-sectional facade containing 19 pipes arranged: 1-4-9-4-1. Stops are in vertal rows on flat jambs. The church must hve gone through a renovation because a subsequent 1894 photo shows different organ in the same location, the upper gallery removed, and the original oil lamps electrified.
