The organ is free-standing and encased at the front of the room. The layout
is Manual I above Manual II with both framed by the divided Pedal. The Manual
I 4' Principal is in the façade. The Pedal 8' Gemshorn is in that division's
façade. The organ was originally built for the Locust Valley, Long Island,
New York studio of sculptor Richard Lippold. After the artist's death, the
organ was disassembled and placed in storage in a warehouse located in Brooklyn,
New York. The Tides Institute & Museum of Art in Eastport, Maine learned of the
existence of the organ in 2016 and purchased the disassembled organ in November,
2016 from Lawrence Trupiano of Mann & Trupiano and had it transported to Eastport,
Maine. In the spring of 2018 they had the organ reassembled in their North Church
building. The inaugural concerts using the organ at the North Church were per-
formed by organist, James David Christie, on July 14 and 15, 2018.
