Notes

  • Identified by James R. Stettner through information from the Estey Opus List, published in The Boston Organ Club newsletter, 1973-1979. (Database Manager. October 27, 2007)
  • Updated through on-line information from Roy Frenzke. -- Presumably this is the First Presbyterian Church, Boonton, NJ; no church in the area includes "Eastminster" in its name. The organ was scrapped in 2010 and replaced with a windless ersatz. Unwinded pipes displayed on either side of the chancel include some Haskell basses, suggesting an Estey's presence at one time. The organist, however, stated that the former console bore the name plate of a local builder. (Database Manager. March 28, 2011)
