Updated by Joyce Neel Crofts, who has heard or played the organ.
I played this organ at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Georgetown, KY, for almost three years. Sadly, a roof leak during a storm allowed water into the organ. After 18 months of insurance company and organ technicians attempting to restore it, it was determined by all that it could not be saved. The Miller Organ Company (now out of business) took it for parts. The church subsequently purchased a 1940 Aeolian-Skinner unit organ which was installed in 2013.

Updated through online information from William Dunklin. -- This organ was moved to Holy Trinity Church circa 1990. In 2012 a roof leak severely damaged the chest and the decision was made to replace the instrument. As of February 2014 the organ is unplayable and awaiting removal.
