[1963 notes:] Tonal changes in the Swell appear to have been the replacing of a Trumpet or Cornopean with the Salicional and the Principal with an Aeoline. The flue Oboe is apparently original. The organ cost $4,625. [1992 notes:] "some changes were made [at the turn of the century] probably by H. C. Harrison of Portland, Maine. The Twelfth was removed from the Great and the Swell Clarinet was put into its spot. The Violina and Bassoon/Oboe were replaced with an Aeoline and Salicional and a Celeste was placed in the Clarinet spot. The Octave, Fifteenth and Mixture on the Great were softened."
