The organ is free-standing and housed in a quarter-sawn oak case at the front of the room.
The facade contains 33 gold-painted pipes arranged: 5 – 23 – 5. The keydesk is attached and
projecting. The manuals are covered by a lid which unfolds to form a music rack. Stop are
Estey's patented Haskell miniature keyboard above the Swell manual – where the face of the
white keys are engraved to indicate the speaking stop or mechanical function. Pressing the
white key locks it down and actuates the stop. Pressing the adjacent black key cancels it.
