Updated through online information from Ben Yanke. -- The tremolo is now detached (though the stop is still there on the console), other than that, it's fantastic, kept up well, and in regular use at least once a week, often more.

Updated through online information from Todd Phipps. -- Recent pictures on the church's Web site at www.stmarypb.com shows an organ and organ loft matching the one in the 1972 photos included here. St. Mary's web site indicates that a satellite church in another village was destroyed by a lightning strike many years ago and never rebuilt, but St. Mary of Pine Bluff is still there.
