Database Manager on June 14, 2005:

On-line update from Richard Schneider -- The organ was an unfortunate victim of too much water damage and lack of interest on the part of the church to restore it. Some parts were acquired by Roy Redman of Texas for the restoration of a similar instrument. Some of the pipes remain but the slider chest and manual keys were so badly water damaged that they were destroyed. The pipes which remain and some of the action parts are still in storage in the Schneider Pipe Organs warehouse in Kenney, IL.
