The Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organs were the most famous musical instrument built by Wurlitzer. On February 9, 1928, out of North Tonawanda, New York, the Wurlitzer Company manufactured and shipped the Opus #1836, a “3 manual special,” to the Stanley Theater of Jersey City, New Jersey. This Mighty Wurlitzer Organ spent two decades entertaining customers at the Roaring 20’s Pizza Parlor on 28th Street in Grand Rapids, before it was moved to its current location at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
ORGAN CONCERT SERIES
We had a great series in 2017. Check back for the 2018 Organ Concerts announcement.
That was such a wonderful concert that Mr. Stahl put on for us. Several of us were visiting friends in Saranac and they wanted to take us along. I can’t believe you only charge $10? I will ask them to bring us again next year when we visit again for sure. Lovely museum from what we had time to see on the way out. – Magie Brady, October 2015
