The Goodrich case was used for the new organ in 1895. The Hook & Hastings organ had a projecting console with drawknobs and straight stepped-jambs. The Frazee Organ Company altered the case and added electro-pneumatic action in 1936. In 1968, Ross Abel rebuilt the organ reusing some of the pipework revoiced. Further rebuilding took place in the 1970's. The 1841 Goodrich casework was reworked with recycled parts and a recessed console chassis and some recycled Frazee pipework. The work was done by Angerstein and Associates.

This organ was originally located at the First Congregational Church of Edgartown. The console was recessed with drawknobs and both sides of the case were flat. The organ was replaced in 1895 by Hook & Hastings and the case was reused.
