NAME OF SUBJECT
Mission Valley residents call it "Walzem Chapel," but it also was known as "St John Chapel" or "Anna Gertruda Chapel." Now in ruins, the old limestone chapel is located about four miles northwest of New Braunfels on Texas 46
Author Alton J. Rahe writes about the chapel, the Walzems and other area families m "History of fVlission Valley Community " Around 1851, Johann Joseph Walzem and his wife, Anna Gertruda Walzem, came to Texas from Prussia and settled in Mission Valley In 1859, Walzem received 160 acres of land from the state of Texas
Walzem, a stonemason, built a limestone house, barn and, in 1870, a chapel. Legend says he built it in thanksgiving for his safe return from a trip to Germany. In 1871, it was deeded to the Catholic Church and renamed St. John Chapel. Eventually, the land was sold and the little-used chapel fell into disrepair Rahe writes: "The contents disappeared and the roof gave way At present, only the well-constructed rock walls of
