Updated by T. Daniel Hancock, listing conversations with this person as the source of the information: Michael Quimby.

Church was closed, and pipework for the Pedal 16\' Trombone and entire Great organ, except for 8\' and 4\' flutes, was stolen by vandals. The Swell and Choir were removed by Quimby Pipe Organs. The console was destroyed by rain water, because the skylight above had been broken. The original windchests were membrane chests.
