Preußisch Eylau, Ev. Pfarrkirche


This organ resembles the organ at Schaaken (1734) so much, that it is not unreasonable to assume that this organ was also built by G. S. Caspari around 1730.

Probably, it had around 12 stops and 1 manual and pedal. I have no further information about this instrument.

Although the church was virtually undamaged in 1945, it turned gradually into ruins in the years afterwards (DEHIO 1993: 488) and was demolished finally in 1980. This fate came to many of the churches in the Russian part of East-Prussia.
