Identified through online information from George Donovan. -- Updated by George Donovan, who has heard or played the organ.

The organ was originally built by M.P. Moller for Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, Winchester, Virginia in 1913. When Grace received a new organ from Schantz, the Moller was gifted to Bethel Evangelical Lutheran around 1994 by an unknown builder. Tonal and mechanical changes were made at that time.
