Jim Stettner on February 19, 2022:

This entry represents tonal changes to the existing ca. 1920 Wm. W. Laws electrification and rebuild of the original 1883 Geo. S. Hutchings, Opus 115. Identified from research by Robert J. Reich of the AndoverOrgan Co., and from the extant organ. The organ was actually two ranks smaller after the Kelley work.
