Organ Lutheran Church Cemetery, Rowan County, North Carolina, USA

1515 Organ Church Road
Salisbury, North Carolina

The church is four miles south of Faith. It became known as Organ Church after 1774, when John Stirewalt, a member of the congregation, built an organ for it.

The present and oldest structure, called the Old Historic Church, dates from 1795 except for a higher roof and a steeple added between 1886-1894. A new church building was built 1958-1960.

Organ is sometimes called the Mother Church of Lutheranism in North Carolina. It is said to be the oldest Lutheran congregation in Rowan County.
