    The instrument is unaltered except for lights over the keyboard and on the sides of the case, and 
    is still in its original location in the gallery of the small stone church building. Wind is 
    supplied by the original hand pump. The facade is dummy pipes in a rather plain three sided walnut 
    "prickly Gothic" case, with hinged doors which close off the keydesk. All pipes are enclosed with 
    the exception of the Pedal Sub Bass. The Flute a Chiminée, Hautboy, and Dulciana stopknobs are 
    original; all the others have disappeared.  The instrument was restored ca.1975 by Richard Hamar, 
    and will receive further work before the convention in summer 1997 from William Czelusniak of 
    Czelusniak et Dugall, of Northampton, MA.
    
    The church is a small stone building built in 1836, with a pine barrel vaulted ceiling and 
    elaborate stenciling on the walls. As there is no heat, the church meets here only in summer, using 
    another building in winter.
