Notes

  • Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- According to the church website, this was a Hutchings rebuild of the 1888 Johnson & Son tracker (Op. 704) built for the previous edifice. A picture on the church website shows a large pipe facade in an arch at the front on the right side. This seems to have been retained from the Hutchings when the Aeolian-Skinner was installed in 1955. According to the Johnson opus list, the Johnson/Hutchings was said to have been moved to First Baptist in Holland, New York and later sold to Providence Lutheran in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, but was never set up. I saw the chassis of this organ in the Lee workshop in Knoxville, Tennessee during my years as a student at Maryville College (1982-85). Its subsequent disposition is unknown. (Database Manager.
