The pipe organ is a major highlight in the Stawell Uniting Church’s interior. It was built by JE Dodd in 1920; a renowned organ builder hailing from Adelaide. Aside from being a focal point within the interiors, the pipe organ served as a symbol of victory and peace from the war.
The tower’s three-dimensional form is enhanced by a projecting gable end, while the base of the tower features double timber doors and inscribed with Gothic reliefs. Inside the church is also an awe-inspiring organ, made in 1920 and was a symbol used to give gratitude for peace.
