Ron Wehmeier of Ronald F. Wehmeier, Inc. Pipe Organ Service rebuilt the Wurlitzer, supervised the construction work and installed the organ in the Ballroom of Cincinnati Music Hall.

In June, 2008, Messer Construction began work on preparing the ballroom of Cincinnati's historic Music Hall for the installation of the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, originally hosted in the Albee Theatre in downtown Cincinnati. Music Hall Manager Scott Santangelo documented the progress.

Work progressed through the fall, and by November, the HVAC system was installed and Ron could begin the setup inside the chambers. Work continued through the winter and into the spring.

Ron tested and brought in renowned theatre organist Lyn Larsen for a final check. Larsen was a consultant in the tonal design and layout of restored historic instruments.
