         Restorer ‘dials back the clock’ on an 1823 beauty...
         Nearly 200-year-old church organ being restored by Stonington craftsman...

 Currently under restoration, is the oldest church organ in Connecticut, the Thomas Hall organ of 1823 built originally for St. Michael's Episcopal Church, Litchfield, and since 1859 in Trinity Episcopal Church, Milton. The organ is being restored under the O.H.S. Guidelines for Conservation, reversing changes made to the organ's fabric in 1859 and through several modern attempts at restoration, returning it as closely as possible to its original 1823 condition. It is the only intact organ remaining of this landmark pioneer of American organbuilding working in New York City.

Also under restoration is Alvinza Andrews Opus 1, 1837, formerly installed in the Presbyterian Church, Vernon Center, New York. Acquired by S.L. Huntington & Co. in 2010, it will be placed on permanent loan in St. Timothy's Episcopal Church (1838), Westford, New York.
