Steven Bartley on January 16, 2022:

The Church -Building Quartlerly was a magazine concerning the happenings of the Congregational Church in the USA. In the July 1903 issue they featured the newly completed Congregational Church in Lake Mills Wisconsin. Only two details were given, the cost of the organ was $3700, and it was run by a water motor. A photo of the church exterior was included as well as the organ, standing behind the pulpit. (seen here) A Google search of the same church shows a 20th century renovation of the chancel, with altar against the wall and no sign of a pipe organ.
