A post on Facebook's 'Wisconsin Organ Scene' by Charles Arthur Habeck of Nolte Organ Building on February 24, 2017 stated, "Does anyone know anything about this organ at St Johns Ev Lutheran Church is Wrightstown, WI? We are updating the switching system but can't find anything about a builder."
A subsequent search of the history section of the church's website revealed, "In 1919 the congregation celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its founding. To commemorate the event the members ordered a new pipe organ and planned to dedicate it at the anniversary service. The organ did not arrive in time for the special anniversary service on December 28, 1919, but it was finally installed in the fall of 1920. The total cost of the pipe organ was $3,320, paid for in two years time with the assistance of the Ladies- Aid and Young People-s Societies."
