Foundation of the company by Gottlieb Heise

The master organ builder Gottlieb Heise founded the Potsdam organ building workshop in 1820. Among Heise’s most famous works are the organs for the Lehniner Klosterkirche St. Marien (1828) with one manual and eleven stops, for the Potsdam Kirche St. Nikolai (1837) with two manuals and 26 stops and for the Klosterkirche St. Trinitatis in Neuruppin (1840) with two manuals and 22 stops. He also equipped village churches in the Mittelmark with organs, for example the church in Herzberg (1836), the normal church of Schinkel in Lütte (1842), the Heilandskirche am Port von Sacrow (1844) and the village church of Mariendorf (1846).
