Updated by Matthew Dion

The organ originally began its life in a funeral home in Brighton MA (exact year of the organ is unknown). The organ was then purchased by a man by the name of Willam Dion (no relation) of Dartmouth MA where the organ was installed in his home for many years. The organ then moved in the late \'90s to La Salle Academy in Providence where it was owned and rebuilt by Br. Roger Chingas, a la salle brother, who was building a practice instrument. In 2019 the brothers\' house will close, and Matthew Dion now owns the organ which was relocated to Somerset by Br. Roger and Matthew. The organ has been completely rebuilt except for the wiring (organ needs to be rewired). Plans are to install it at a later date.
