Updated through online information from Scot Huntington. -- In 2008, some of the Estey façade pipes were recycled as part of in a new case constructed for Johnson & Son Op.796, 1893, originally built for the Congregational Church, Kent, N.Y. and moved by parishioners without additional alteration to the Smithfield Church, Amenia, N.Y.

Database Manager on June 19, 2007:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- According to both the chronological Estey Opus List as printed in the Boston organ Club newsletter (1973-79) and the geographical Estey Opus List published by the builder, the organ was rebuilt by Estey in 1952 - seemingly without opus. This included electrification and a new console, and apparently no tonal changes. Pleasant specification, but no true reed registers. Don't know if the three Pedal registers were expanded to 32 pipes from the original 30.
