The Cherokee was not a single story building. It had 2 stories. The Link theatre organ was actually a piano console with 2 side cabinets, one housing 4 ranks of organ pipes and the other a 4 roll player cabinet.

jgrebe commented about Missouri Theatre on Aug 12, 2008 at 11:31 am

The first console of the Missouri died in a fire due to a careless smoker. The 2nd console along with a new expanded unification relay took it’s place and made the organ noteworthy. In 1954 the console was purchased by Harvey Heck and made it part of the Graumann’s Egyptian Theatre Wurlitzer that he owned. In 1972 it became part of Bill Brown’s Wurlitzer in the first “Organ Stop Pizza”. In 1987 the restaraunt closed , organ removed and was sold to Jim and Sherrie Krughoff in Downers Grove, IL and Dave Junchen restored it and it is now part of the Krughoff Residence Wurlitzer since Aug. 5, 1989 when it was formally dedicated.
