Paul R. Marchesano on October 05, 2022:

The organ, a garden variety "stock model", was installed In 1905. In 1978 it underwent a renovation by the Andover Organ Co., under the direction of Robert Newton. In addition to mechanical renewal, the organ received two tonal changes: the Dulciana 8', originally tenor C, was extended to full compass, and a tenor C Vox Celeste 8' in the Swell was replaced with the 2' stop. -- 1992 OHS Handbook
