Database Manager on March 06, 2013:

Updated through online information from Don Hurd. -- I have visited this organ many times. It is now a Baptist church. The pipe chambers have had lots of rain water through them. Serious water damage! Lots of pipes could be salvaged, though several people have already helped themselves. Someone removed one pipe from every rank for a Skinner souvenir display! The beautiful, undamaged console had been removed when I last visited around 2002.
