Updated by Timothy E. Conyers, who has heard or played the organ.
The instrument had some restoration work done in 2000 and was featured in a piano & organ patriotic concert on July 4, 2000, to a packed sanctuary.
This organ was part of the OHS 2007 convention tour of central Indiana.
In 2014, the pipe chamber room was renovated. All pipes and parts were removed, cleaned and repaired by Michael Rathke of Spiceland, Indiana, and then reinstalled.
NOTE: The town is known locally as both Pershing and East Germantown. The name was changed to Pershing due to the political climate prior to and during World War I and World War II. The town is now officially listed as East Germantown and is the name found on State maps. This has caused confusion to non-residents of the county. Records of the church are under both names. The instrument is listed on this database under both town names for understandable reasons but with slightly different information.
