Already under the Old Regime, the suburb of Saint-Antoine was the district of cabinetmakers and derivative trades (gilders, lackers, upholsterers, tanners). There were many German and Alsatian workers whose immigration had been favoured by the opening of the Strasbourg- Paris and Muhlouse-Paris railway lines. In 1863, faced with the increase of Lutherans in the district, a first place of worship was built by Pastor Hosemann on the site of the former convent of the Benedictines of Bon-Secours, Rue de Charonne. The cult then took place alternately in German and French. A school and an orphanage are created. In 1893, the complex was transferred to 4 Titon Street. The first stone of the temple was laid on June 20, 1895 and the building was inaugurated on May 10, 1896. Its architect was the Protestant Adolphe Augustin Rey. It is built in a neo-Romanesque style, mixing Art- nouveau elements. The building has the distinction of being illuminated by a zenithal canopy, supported by a beautiful pine frame from North America, witness to the craftsmanship of the Faubourg Saint- Antoine.
This instrument was built in 1895 by Merklin. It was hardly modified during the byears, except for the traction and the addition of a Cymbale III on the GO (by Picaud or Sebire?).
