Database Manager on March 11, 2010:

Updated through on-line information from Dennis Barrett. -- The organ was well taken care of but when it was moved some minor damage was done to some metal pipes; the frame has to be tightened up. The wooden pipes are in good shape; we are now repairing the cracks and taking out the dents of metal pipes. Spencer Organ Co. in Boston has been very helpful to us in restoring this organ. The amount of floor space is about 8'Wx15-Dx10'H ; it has 8 stops (and a bellows signal), 6 ranks, 158 pipes.
