Database Manager on October 17, 2011:

Updated through online information from William Catanesye. -- Stopped in the open doors of St. John the Baptist Hellenic Orthodox church (Formerly South Congregational). Organ appears to be there but seems to have fallen into disuse. Looking through the facade, pipes are tipped over and it is very dirty. It does not appear to be significantly altered.
