William L Degan on May 01, 2021:

This organ was moved from Immaculate Conception R. C. Church in Hartford, Connecticut by the Austin Organ Service Company in 2001. Current (2021) Organist and Music Director Joy O'Sullivan helped me gather this information, as well as took me through the chambers and allowed me to play the organ. The organ is in good condition and is currently serviced by Foley Baker, Incorporated of Bolton, Connecticut. -W. Degan, 4/30/21
