Updated through online information from John J. Miller. -- Church was visited 24 June, 2015. Organ played with minor problems including dead notes, a few unresponsive drawknobs, and inoperable swell pedals. The Echo division was also inoperable. The organ appears to be unaltered aside from a new music rack.
Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist relocated to 2011 East Capitol Drive in Shorewood, WI sometime after 1996. The Chinese Christian Church of Milwaukee now occupies the building. The organ is not used for worship.
