The organ replaced an Aeolian Orchestrelle, and is installed in the stairwell of the mansion, where it can be played from the console or the Aeolienne roll player. It was restored in 1980 by Larry Nevin and Frank Thompson, and is believed to be the oldest residential pipe organ in the United States still playing in its original state. A recording of the instrument featuring the roll player and organist Edwin I. Lawrence in period repertoire is available.
