Notes: Restored by Richard Lurth, 1977. The Hook opus list shows this number built for the State Institute for the Blind in Austin, TX. The Pilcher ledger indicates that Pilcher installed a used Hook & Hastings from the Institute for the Blind in Austin at Bethlehem Evangelical, 6th & Hill, Louisville, KY in 1918. We do not know where the late Dick Lurth acquired this organ. Manuals 58 notes, Pedal 27 notes.

Moved to Two Harbors by Samuel Black in 1995. The Texas site is not mentioned in any of the church documents. A member of the parish purchased the organ from an unidentified public theater in Fort William. He underwrote its transportation and installation in 1931.

The connection between Fort William and Holy Ghost appears in lots of documents at the church, from the enlarging of the church, the fire of the original church, and the gift of the organ by Martin Muth to the church.
