Database Manager on April 19, 2015:

The organ was built in 1927 for the Orpheum Theatre in Madison, Wisconsin, and was originally a 3/9 instrument.

The Weill Center for the Performing Arts was previously the Sheboygan Theatre, which had opened in 1928. In 1996, the building was purchased and restored by a community theatre foundation, and transformed into the Weill Center. Previously, when it was still the Sheboygan Theatre, the building originally housed a 2/7 Wurlitzer "Style E", opus 1828, which was sold before the theatre became the Weill Center.
