Notes:

1. The first organ in the present Gower Street Church was installed in 1896 after the 1892 Great Fire. It was a two-manual Conacher organ with 1400 pipes, The organist’s salary was $120.00 per annum, and the organ blower was paid 0.50 per Sunday.

2. In 1930 the organ had mechanical problems and was sold to the Memorial United Church in Grand Falls (now Grand Falls-Windsor). A new Casavant organ, the gift of John Leamon, was installed that year. It had three manuals, 29 stops and about 1500 pipes.

3. The organ underwent an extensive rebuilding, enlargement and tonal upgrading by Casavant Frères in 2008.

4. The present specification shows three manuals, 36 stops and approximately 2200 pipes.
