Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The case from floor to impost is original Johnson. But the facade and case sides date from the Andover rebuild. 4-sectional facade with 16 pipes arranged: 4-4-4-4. Other vintage pipework utilized in the tonal augmentation includes E. & G.G. Hook, Opus 366, 1865 (Gt. 4' Flute d'Amour bass and Gt. 8' Stopped Diapason treble); George Stevens, 18?? (Sw. 8' Stopped Diapason); J.H. & C.S. Odell, 18?? (Sw. 2-2/3' Nazard made from a Viol and 2' Principal made from a Keraulophon); Woodberry & Harris, 18?? (Sw. 1-3/5' Tierce made from old pipework). The Pedal 8' Principal is the original Johnson Swell Open Diapason. The Pedal compass was increased from 27 to 30 notes. Sources: Extant organ documented May, 1988; Andover Organ Co. files.
