Jim Stettner on November 21, 2020:

The windchests and pipes are primarily from two sources: The Capital Theatre Wurlitzer (Opus 1872) in Racine, Wisconsin and 11 ranks from the Dale Williams residence in Whitewater, Wisconsin. The console is 1931 Wurlitzer (Opus 2165) originally built for the Madison Gardens Skating Rink in Chicago, Illinois. Later, it was transplanted to the Hub Rink in Chicago. And when Leon Barry replaced it at the Hub with a 3-manual console - it went to the Barry Residence. Then it went to the Dale Williams Residence in Whitewater, Wisconsin. When Mr. Williams passed in 2016, it was acquired by Ryan Jonas from Dave Williams - Dale's son.
