Paul R. Marchesano on May 24, 2022:

At the front of the sanctuary stands Op. 1 of Charles E. Chadwick. In 1981, the Roche Organ Co. restored the instrument, with some minor tonal changes. The facade has nineteen pipes, of which two are dummies; the case is oak with egg-and-dart moldings. The pedalboard is flat, with concave sharp fronts. The Great and Swell chests are in "N" layout and are chromatic from note 25. The reservoir has been releathered as a single rise and the feeders removed. There is one blank drawknob on the Great side. -- 2005 OHS Handbook
