There is mention of a church dedicated to Saint George in Großkmehlen in as early as 1205. Extended and altered many times, the church is now in a cruciform shape with a west tower and Baroque interior. Special features include the gallery on three sides, the carved altar said to date from 1495 and the sandstone pulpit from 1620. The church in Großkmehlen became famous primarily because its Silbermann organ. Gottfried Silbermann built the organ as the eighth of a total of 45 organs in 1718 on behalf of the widow of the owner of Großkmehlen, Johanna Eleonore von Brause. The church archive still contains the "Contract" written by Silbermann for the building of the instrument, for which the benefactor paid 1,000 thalers. Silbermann is considered to be the most significant Central German organ builder of the Baroque era. His organs were already famous during his lifetime. A generous private donation allowed the organ to be restored in the 1990s and lost stops to be reconstructed.
