The Sanbornton Congregational Church organ has undergone a complete makeover. Some of the original Estey ranks were retained but, with acquisition of a 3-manual Austin Console, additional ranks of Austin, Moller, and other noted companies have been added to make the instrument a comprehensive American-Classic style instrument.
The instrument evolved through the hard work of K. Robert Bengtson, Clif Mills, Dennis Akerman, Robert Ladew and Laura Belanger. Special thanks also goes to church members for their financial support.
Sanbornton Congregational Church is located at
21 Meeting House Hill Road, Sanbornton, NH
