Database Manager on September 26, 2008:

Updated through information from Scot Huntington: The museum has closed and the contents dispersed at auction. The new owners of the building subsequently sold the organ, and it was removed in June 2008. It is destined for a large Roman Catholic Church in Waterbury, CT, possibly either Our Lady of Lourdes or the Immaculate Conception Basilica, as a front choir organ.
