Database Manager on June 08, 2009:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The congregation was originally St. Thomas Episcopal, which met at an 1878 edifice on Kirk St. at Broadway. They had a transplanted 1878 Hutchings. It was forced to close ca. 1901, and reorganized as All Saints Episcopal at a new edifice provided by Edward F. Searles and designed by Henry Vaughan. St. John's Episcopal in Lawrence merged with All Saints in 1949, and the combined congregations renamed as St. Andrew's Episcopal.
