By the light of day, the upstairs sanctuary has been destroyed but the downstairs fellowship hall is intact with severe water damage. Whether it is salvageable remains to be seen. The fire department assisted in removing the Revere bell the next morning, before what was left of the steeple collapsed. The organ was totally destroyed except for the keyboards, only because the console cover was down. This is especially sad, as it was Nutting's only surviving two-manual organ (including his only surviving Trumpet)- his remaining extant organs being small one-manual and chamber organs. The organ had been throughly rebuilt by Sievert, an ex-Hutchings man, in a late 19th-century style using Hutchings parts (keyboards, stop knobs and engraving, action components, etc.), and with a new case. However the Nutting chests and pipework were completely intact without revoicing, with a few minor tonal changes using Hutchings-style pipework. This organ contained the largest surviving collection of Nutting pipework. Sadly, while the 2013 Vermont convention did an excellent documentation of the organ culture, there was no documentation whatsoever of the individual organs, so any technical knowledge of this one-of-a-kind instrument is now lost.
Sadly, the organ was destroyed by fire the evening of Monday, April 26, 2021. The church was a total loss.
