Pleasant Street Congregational Church
Arlington, MA 02174 US
Organ ID: 9385
Updated through online information from Scot Huntington. -- The Hutchings organ was electrified and enlarged by the Williams Organ Company of Swampscott, Mass. in 1955. The Hutchings pipework was largely retained without alteration, with several new stops added to the specification. The organ is installed in a chamber at the left front of the room. By 1983 the rebuilt organ had become mechanically unreliable, and was again rebuilt in 1985 by Angerstein & Associates of Stoughton, Mass. as an essentially new tracker-action instrument recycling parts and pipework from both Hutchings and Williams incarnations. In 2010, the congregation merged with another congregational church in Arlington, and the building and organ were put up for sale.
The original builder was George S. Hutchings (1899, Opus495).
Electrification and enlargement. Retrackerized by Angerstein & Assoc. in 1985 with extensive tonal changes (2-22s, 25r). [G. Nelson says W. F. Laws.]
