Notes: The console was replaced in 1971 by an Austin stop-tab console. However, the church purchased an Aeolian-Skinner console (Op. 906) in hopes that it can eventually be rebuilt to replace the Austin console.

The facility was sold to the State of Connecticut. In January 2008, the organ was been put in storage by Foley-Baker prior to restoration and a 2010 installation in Appleton Chapel, Harvard University.
