Database Manager on April 15, 2012:

Updated through online information from Ron Yeater. -- I visited this organ in 1995, about 2 years after the flood. The waters entered the church,but did not reach the organ in the balcony. However, in addition to all the organ's other troubles, the resulting humidity had just about finished it off! The parish was soon afterward closed by the bishop, so the present status of the organ is unknown- it's probably just sitting there rotting away! Too bad; this one is fascinating!
