Restored by THE ANDOVER ORGAN COMPANY, OPUS R-265, 1986
Our organ was originally built for St. John’s Roman Catholic Church, Providence, R.I. It remained in use until the 1950’s, when, probably due to poor or negligent maintenance, or both, over a long period of time, it became unplayable.
In May, 1983, our sancturary was completely destroyed by fire. An Organ Committee was quickly formed to seek a replacement for the one that was lost. Through a providential series of events we were able to procure this superb 19th century mechanical action organ.
