Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- Organ originally built for First Unitarian in Petersham, Massachusetts. Replaced there in 1901 by a new Hook & Hastings. Hook took the organ in trade and placed it at Union Baptist Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where it remained until 1932 when it was relocated to Stoddard by an undocumented individual or firm. The organ was restored in 2001-02 by Andrew T. Smith of Cornish, New Hampshire with Ed Boadway acting as restoration coordinator and facilitator. It was removed in November 2001, and returned in time for Christmas 2002. Metal pipework repairs, voicing, and tuning of the restored organ have been done by A. David Moore since 1973. -- Swell is tenor G-compass: 35 notes
