Help us rebuild Thacher Hall's historic tracker organ

Thacher Hall's 1870s tracker pipe organ is the heart of our building. It was purchased for what was then the Church of the New Jerusalem by Henry C. Thacher, a member of the congregation. The keys are made of ebony and ivory, with stop knobs inscribed using a method similar to scrimshaw. Each key is connected directly to the pipe valves by a thin wooden strip called a tracker.

But our organ is showing its age and is in need of $225,000 of refurbishment. In late 2023, it will be removed from the building by the Andover Organ Co. for repair and restoration. It will then be returned to Thacher Hall in about six months.

Please consider a gift to restore the organ's marvelous sound for many decades to come! Sustaining gifts may be made over three years.
