In the middle of the 19th century, following the sharp increase in the population of this industrial district, an additional place of worship was needed. Like many churches in Paris, the Second Empire took care of it. Notre-Dame-de- la-Gare was built between 1855 and 1864 by architect Claude Naissant (1801-1879). The style chosen was roman of the late 12th century.

Thanks to a donor the parish received the current Grand-Orgue built by Cavaillé-Coll in 1863 (opus 165). This instrument was originally not intended for this church, but probably for a convent near Saint-Omer. Nevertheless, the original composition, the case and the bench worked (with lyres on the sides ) may be reminiscent of a lounge organ. Originally, the keyboards extended to 54 notes and the pedalboard (only in “tirasse”) to 25 notes. At the beginning of the 20th century, a restoration got started by Charles Mutin. He carried the 30-note pedal range and added a Soubasse 16 'and a Flute 8' (using part of the pipes of the facade, which were then canons-“chanoines”). In 1928, restoration works were entrusted to the organ-builder G. Gutschenritter. On this occasion, the range of keyboards was increased to 56 notes, a Flute of 4 'of pedal was added, as well as the Barker machine of the Grand-Orgue. In 1943, the same company added to the pedal a Soubasse 32 ', with the first octave borrowed from Soubasse 16', completed with 12 pipes of Quinte 10 '2/3. During this intervention, the harmony was retouched, especially for the Plein-Jeu and the Cornet. The original tuning of the organ was raised from 435 Hz to 440 Hz, probably by Gutschenritter or Haerpfer. An other restoration was carried out in 1995-1997 by the organ-maker Daniel Kern. A new pedal was placed and the harmony was partly modified. The maintenance of the organ went to the organ maker Cicchero and is now entrusted to the factor Yves Fossaert. The instrument was classified as a historic monument by order of 20 June 1989. Source: @aristidecavaillec0ll
