Database Manager on December 15, 2018:

Ziegel is the German word for 'tile.' The original church had a tile roof. The church has two services - one for the Lutheran (ELCA) members and one for the United Church of Christ members. The church was remodeled in 1956, at which time the choir was moved from the gallery to the front and Op. 8901 was installed in front side chambers instead of in the gallery like the old organ.
