Database Manager on October 24, 2011:

Updated through online information from William Dunklin. -- This building has been unused since the 1970's due to neglect. It was rumored that the Pilcher was removed to be installed at the ca. 1990 suburban Bellevue megachurch location's chapel, but that rumor is unconfirmed. Photos of this building coming down clearly show the Pilcher console still in situ, partially crushed under building debris.
