The church has in its summer sanctuary an historic organ that is renowned for its beautiful tone: the 1831 Goodrich Organ. It was built by Boston organ builder William Goodrich and is the oldest example of his organ building still in its original site which has been in continuous use. In 2010 a restoration project on the organ was completed. It is one of the finest tracker-action organs in America. Goodrich passed his knowledge on to many other organ builders whose organs now are all over New England, such as the Hook Brothers and Appleton. Goodrich died very young, at 53, and so did not get have a chance to build as many organs as his apprentices did. Additional information about this organ at the Unitarian Church is available.


In our summer sanctuary we have a Steinway piano on permanent loan from the Nantucket Arts Council, and downstairs in our winter sanctuary, Hendrix Hall, houses a Yamaha piano.
