Notes: The organ and chancel were destroyed by fire February 3, 1931; the Kinzey-Lawn opus list says that the organ was replaced by Op. 861, but the church website says "the organ currently in use is the 1875 organ from Williston Chapel on Danforth Street. Refurbished .... in 1973, major repairs were made in the summer of 1995." The latter work was possibly done by Austin.
