Updated through information from James R. Stettner. -- The following is from notes given to me by Robert J. Reich when I was an employee of the Andover Organ Co. in the 1990's. The building was First Methodist Episcopal Church at the time of the installation. It was also known as Haverhill Street Methodist. The organ was originally installed in the rear gallery, and was relocated to the front ca. 1880. The building was purchased by the Presbyterian congregation in 1912. The conversion of the Pedal action to tubular-pneumatic was reportedly ca. 1920-22. The expression shades had originally been hitch-down and were converted to balanced. The cost of the organ was $2,600.00.We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on November 06, 2019.
