George W. Reed was a New England pipe organ builder in the late 1800s and early 1900s. His craftsmanship was recognized throughout the region, and his organs were built to last. Our historic tracker-organ was built in 1903, and was installed at the the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Greenfield. In 1932, the congregation in Ashfield voted to buy the instrument, where it has remained ever since.
Age had taken its toll, however, and in 2016 the Trustees formed an Organ Committee to research the costs of restoration. By 2017, we had decided to launch a capital campaign to raise $300,000, 75% of which would go toward restoring the organ. The campaign was successful. Pledges from nearly 300 individuals and several grants from the Joseph Bradley Charitable Foundation totaled $376,537 by December 2019.
Czelusniak et Dugal, Inc. completed restoration in June, 2020.
