Orpheum's Organ Is Taking A Trip To Chicago

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - A Memphis treasure that's been entertaining crowds for decades is on the move. The Orpheum packed up its historic "Mighty Wurlitzer" organ Thursday and shipped it to Chicago.

Thanks to a gift from the Plough Foundation, along with donations from the community, the 90-year-old organ is getting a complete rebuild.

It is one of only 12 in the world that remains where it was originally installed.

The organ is set to return in the fall of 2019.
