Originally built in 1938 for the Dahlstrom Residence, the organ was rebuilt before it ever left the factory for installation. ​Doubled in size, the organ was finally installed in it's first home in 1939, complete with an Artiste Player with 6 rolls.  Upon Dahlstrom's death, the organ was sold by his family to Lexington United Methodist Church in Lexington, Massachusetts in 1956 for $1,000.  M.P. Möller relocated the organ, adding three stops: 8' Concert Flute in the Choir and a 8' Spitzflute and Flute Celeste in the Swell.  The installation was done in a first-class manner in two chamber on either side of the chancel.  


The pipework is essentially unaltered and retains its orchestral voicing; all pipes are in remarkably pristine condition.   Although lacking a 4' Octave,  the organ boasts no less than 8 ranks of Celestes and and seven reed stops.  The organ is successful due to the fine voicing and carefully thought out borrowing of certain stops.  Credit must go to Richard O. Whitelegg of M.P. Möller who was advising Mr. M. P. Möller Jr. on tonal schemes.  While the original drawknob console is still in use, the Artiste player was not relocated with the organ and it's fate is unknown.
