THE ORGAN

The Carolyn Reynolds Fisher Pipe organ was officially dedicated on September 8, 2002. The organ is a mechanical action instrument, built by the Bradley Rule Organ Company in New Market, Tennessee. The organ is comprised of 27 stops (32 ranks). Two ranks are from the original pipe work of the 1916 Felgemaker organ; B. Rule furnished other 19th century ranks, and Paul Byron of York, Maine made the remaining pipework. The wooden trackers (of which there are over 2,000 lineal feet) are made of white pine that was salvaged from the swell box panels of an 1899 E. L. Holbrook organ. The organ has an eight level memory system that can recall any registration at the touch of a piston.
