Extant feeder bellows are fastened tight to the underside of the reservoir; the hand-pump mechanism for the feeders has been lost. The original Windchests have been pegged to prevent runs or wind leaks. The sliders, toeboards, and rackboards are all original, as are a majority of trackers and the stop action components. One new faceplate was engraved for the missing Swell Stopped Diapason Treble stop-knob. Rackboard markings, pipe holes and the single extant Mixture pipe…found in the Great Fifteenth 2’…permitted reconstruction of the Swell Mixture. Actually, it is a narrow-scaled Sesquialtera composed of 2’ + 1 3/5’ ranks at C1, adding the 2 2/3’ rank at f18; the 1 3/5’ rank breaks back one octave at fs43, sounding at 3 1/5’ for the rest of the compass. The 1888 Mills organ is particularly elegant in its light and precise key actions, its sophisticated voicing and in the careful craftsmanship of its joinery and visual design.
