Updated through on-line information from Richard C Greene. -- The Barckhoff is located in the old Wesley United Methodist Church downtown Crookston.  It is still in playable condition, but now owned by a coffee house that uses the lower level of the church. The sanctuary and organ are still intact minus the stained glass windows.
