When the organ is turned
on, the piano hammers
are disengaged such that
the 61 keys directly
below the upper Great
manual  become the
Accompaniment manual.  
The piano can also be
used as part of the
registration by pressing
the piano tab.

With volume control
shades on both the front
(lobby side) and back
(ballroom) of the
instrument, the organ
can be used for multiple
purposes.  If there is an
activity in the ballroom
during which the organ is
not needed, the back
volume control shades
can be disabled.

The instrument is used
frequently to entertain
guests in the lobby as
well as for ballroom
functions.

The Stonewall Jackson
Hotel Wurlitzer 105 was
installed in 1924.  It is
believed to be the only
remaining intact instrument
of its kind.

The instrument suffered the
ravages of time until 200
5
when the
Shenandoah
Organ Studio Inc. (SOSI)
was contracted to renovate
and restore the organ.

What SOSI found was an
unplayable, nearly gutted
instrument filled with coal
dust compounded by water
damage.

After nine months of work,
the organ was brought back
to life!

The Wurlitzer 10
5 is unique
because it is an organ that
directly incorporates a
piano.

When the organ is turned
off, the lower keyboard is
playable as a standard
piano.  Note the metal
sustain pedal to right of the
swell shoe (black center
above pedal board).  To
the left of the swell shoe is
the una corda (soft) pedal
of the piano.
