This website is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of

WurliTzer Opus 501

a Style 260 Special WurliTzer Theatre Pipe Organ.  This 3-manual, 15-rank instrument was originally installed in the Lafayette Square Theatre in Buffalo, New York, in 1922.  The current owners, Barry Howard and Larry Fenner, purchased the organ in 2005 and completed moving it to its current location in 2007.  It is currently being rebuilt, releathered, refinished, and installed in their residence (known as "Leathering Heights") in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, USA.  When it is completed the organ will consist of 17 ranks with the addition of a Post Horn and a second Vox Humana.

We were very excited to recently learn that Opus 501 is most likely the earliest known example of a WurliTzer Style 260 that is still relatively intact and can be recognized as its original opus!
