About Holy Trinity’s Pipe Organ
In 1915 F.A. Seiberling, co-founder of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, purchased an organ from the M.P. Moeller Pipe Organ Company for installation in the sanctuary of the new building of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in memory of his parents, John & Catherine Seiberling, themselves charter members of the church. Portions of the original instrument still function as part of the organ today. The Seiberling family cared deeply about celebrating and sharing the best of the arts with people in their community. We continue that tradition with our Arts @ Holy Trinity Concert Series. In the early 1980s, the Berghaus Organ Company of Bellwood, Illinois, provided additional features and capabilities for an already expansive instrument. Renovations continue under the care of Leek Pipe Organ Company of Berea, Ohio.
