Database Manager on February 01, 2015:

Updated through online information from Andrew Hagberg. -- Removed to storage awaiting installation at the Hagberg residence in Sterling, MA on Jan. 17, 2015. Great Gamba cut down to make a 4' octave in 1968 by Andover Organ Co. Swell chest was originally prepared for a full compass Oboe, but the rank and stop action were never installed. A complete slider and toeboard were under a cover at the front of the Swell chest. Under the cover, the toeboard was marked Oboe Swell 2340 in pencil.
Organ has not been used in decades due to seized motor on Kinetic blower. Member of the church said it was last played in the 70's or 80's.
