Database Manager on December 29, 2005:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The original builder was James Cole. The organ is freestanding and encased with a large pipe fence on both sides and across the front. While the organ was at St. Matthew's, the Andover Organ Co. made one tonal change. The original Swell 8' Aeoline was rescaled, cut-down, de-bearded, and revoiced as a 2' Flautino.
