Jim Stettner on October 23, 2022:

This entry represents what is believed to be a second-hand installation. The existing building was purchased in 1864 by the German Methodist Episcopal Church - later, Jackson Street Methodist Church. The only Hinners organ appearing on the Hinners opus list for Belleville is First Baptist Church which is recorded as being a 2-manual, 8-rank tracker having been built in 1925.
