Paul R. Marchesano on September 09, 2022:

From the 1992 OHS Handbook: The organ, the gift of Charles Perkins Glidden in memory of Mary S. Glidden, was installed in 1888 at a cost of $1,885 exclusive of the handsome Gothic casework, which was almost certainly designed by Henry Vaughan. The radiating and concave pedalboard is not original; neither are the pipes of the Oboe 8'. Renovation of the instrument is planned for the near future.

Database Manager on August 12, 2008:

Updated through online information from Michael J Smith. -- It's in fine shape. Winding has been electrified and somebody (Andover?) has fitted some of the ranks with shiny new tuning slides, but otherwise it appears original.
