This organ, known as an "Artiste" model, was built in 1936 by M.P. Möller for the Johnson Methodist Church in Philadelphia. Sometime after the late 1990s, this organ was acquired by St. Thomas Lutheran in The Bronx to replace that church's 1924 Möller organ, Op. 3982. Following the closure of St. Thomas Lutheran in 2012, this organ was moved to St. Jacobus Lutheran Church in Woodside, Queens.

The Agreement (Mar. 23, 1916) between M.P. Möller and St. Jacobus Lutheran Church shows that Möller agreed to rebuild a second-hand pipe organ and erect it in the church on or before May 15, 1916, or as soon after as possible, for a consideration of $775. The organ was shipped May 20, 1916. The original builder of the organ is unknown.
