The basis of the present instrument is an organ built by Carl Barckhoff in 1914 for the Reformed Church of Griggstown, New Jersey. Major reconstruction of the organ included thorough rebuilding of the windchests, a new case compatable with the architecture of the church, and a much revised tonal scheme seeking to capture some of the charm and vitality of the organs of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. To this end, a substantial portion of the pipes of the organ are from an organ built c. 1840 by George Stevens. The organ was relocated through the Organ Clearing House, Alan M. Laufman, Director.
