Updated through information from Scot Huntington: "The organ was severely damaged by water during a roof replacement project by an uninsured contractor during the summer of 2001, following the church's purchase by a Korean congregation. The organ has been unplayable and unused since. The congregation is not financially sound and the organ's future is uncertain."
Updated through on-line information from Joseph Dzeda. -- In 2002, virtually on the eve of the instrument's 150th rededication concert, a serious roof leak damaged the Swell Organ, rendering it unplayable. The Great Organ is playable. The present congregation does not use the organ following the damage.
