Welcome to our museum dedicated to the history and innovations of the Estey Organ Company of Brattleboro, Vermont. The company was world-known for manufacturing reed, pipe, and electronic organs and operated for nearly a century. Organizers have established a 501(3)(c) non-profit corporation in the state of Vermont for the purposes of building this museum in the historic slate-sided factory buildings that still stand. We hope you will get involved in this noble effort to preserve the instruments, the history, the stories, and the music, of all those touched by Estey organs.
Engine House Gallery
