Updated through online information from William Dunklin. -- This building was seriously damaged by the Great New England Hurricane of 1938 when the huge steeple was blown over on top of the sanctuary roof. The Casavant console was destroyed, but the pipes and chests were salvaged and reused in the fourth building, constructed on the same site.
