Database Manager on June 27, 2010:

Updated through online information from Thomas L. DeLay. -- The organ was intact and playable when I was in Madison circa 1999/2000. It clearly had not been maintained or tuned in years, but it did play very well if out-of-tune. I understand the building has been preserved as a cultural center.
