ORGAN 3/0

---------- unknown ----------

ORGAN 4/1 -- Allen Organ Company [Allen]

----------

Allen Organ Company


Macungie, Penn.
Electronic tone production
2 manuals, 53 stops
At an unknown time, the Johnson & Son pipe organ was replaced with an electronic instrument manufactured by the Allen Organ Company. Specifications of this organ have not yet been located. ----------

ORGAN 6/3 -- Johnson & Son [Johnson]

----------

Johnson & Son

Westfield, Mass.
Mechanical action
2 manuals, 20 stops
The first-known organ in the present church was built by Johnson & Son of Westfield, Mass. A ledger book entry by Reuben Midmer & Sons, an organbuilding firm in Brooklyn, shows that in 1916 they installed an electric blower on a Johnson tracker organ having two manuals and 20 stops (GT 10, SW 8, PED 2). This organ must have been second-hand as the Johnson firm ceased operations in 1898. It is possible that Midmer moved the Johnson & Son organ from the Church of the Redeemer, which had been removed when Midmer installed a new organ there in 1906. Specifications of this organ have not yet been located. ----------
