Notes: The organ was installed as Skinner Op. 293 in 1921. In 1929, Skinner added some stops, tonally refinished the others and added a new console as Op. 293-A, utilizing parts from the 1903 4-manual Hutchings Op. 1550 from Madison Square Presbyterian, whose congregation merged into First Presbyterian in 1919.
