Information on Past Organs:

1.  During 1865 remodeling an organ was installed in the church balcony and the choir was seated on both sides of the organ.  Name of organ was not available.

2.  In 1909 a new tracker organ was purchased.  The name of organ was not available.  It was purchased for $1,000.00, had 2 manuals with 13 stops. It was 13 feet high by 12 feet deep by 5 feet wide.  August 1, 1909 the organ was dedicated.  It was first placed on the southwest corner of the church (downstairs).  In 1915 the west wall of the church was partially removed and the west addition added to make room for moving the organ to the west wall of the church.

3.  In 1962 a new Verlinden Pipe Organ (Verlinden Pipe Organ Company in Milwaukee, WI, successor to the Wangerin -Weickhart company) was purchased.  The console was located on the northwest side of the church with the pipe along the west wall in the rear of the choir loft. (No specifications of organ can be located.)
