King's Dominion Carousel Organ
Band Organ at King's Dominion Park, Doswell, VA
by William Griswold Jr. (030816 MMDigest)

I have come across a photo of the band organ at King's Dominion theme park in Doswell, VA.  Does anyone know anything about the organ?  From what I remember seeing of it in 2000, it looks like a Gavioli, but the Carousel Census called it an Artizan.  Someone in the park back then told me of plans to have the organ restored, but I didn't buy it.

I would love to hear the organ playing again.  The carousel the organ is on is PTC #44, which was originally from my home park, Six Flags New England (formerly Riverside Park), in Agawam, MA.  Please fill me in on any information you'd have.
