Kresge Hall Organ

Estey Organ Company of Brattleboro, Vermont

2 Manuals - 3 Divisions - 13 Ranks

In 1923 the Sunday School Auditorium (presently named Kresge Hall) could seat 800 and there was installed a small Estey organ of two manuals, 13 ranks with 900+ pipes.  The “cash register” console is a unique and most noticed feature. .

The manual keys are made of celluloid, not plastic or ivory.  The organ speaks into the room from a chamber on the left side of the stage in an unforced manner and beautifully resonates with the natural acoustics of the hall.
