Notes: Immanuel Lutheran Church, commonly known as Freedom Church because of its location in Freedom Township, is located along Waseca County Road 3 about nine miles south of Janesville. Founded in 1874, this Lutheran Church Missouri Synod congregation has a total baptized and communicant membership of 114.

The facade pipes are made of high tin content pipe metal. This organ was voiced by Philip Wirsching.

This organ has the entire original case and action. An electric blower was added at some point. The expression shutters are intact on this instrument.

The organ in the church came from Trinity Lutheran Church in Faribault. When Trinity upgraded to another organ in 1911, the old organ was moved on a sled pulled by oxen some 40 miles to Freedom Church. Restored by Roland Rutz ca. 1992. Identical to the organ in Alma City.
