  • Updated by Daniel Lode, who maintains the organ.
    I went to play the organ in the summer of 2018 and found that mice had ruined all of the valves in the lower LH and RH wind chests and had built a giant nest in the regulator, and had been stocking the organ full of dog food. I since have cleaned out all of the trash and mouse droppings, and replaced all of the non-working valves and it is now back in 100% functional condition. I try to play it at least once a month.
