In 1863, Peter Miller (Muller) died leaving his wife, Mary, to raise their 6 children alone. Facing the
hardships of raising her family, she toiled in the field with her eldest children. Family oral traditions tell that
she knelt down in the field one day and asked the Blessed Mother to help raise her children and keep her family
together. As a symbol of her appreciation, she promised to build a chapel. Mary's son John built this tiny Catholic
chapel on the corner of the Miller farm to fulfill that promise.
The interior has a simple pew, a few benches, religious statues and an altar. The chapel stands as it was
originally built with no electricity or running water, a testament to the strengths of the early settlers. Today's
family members hold a traditional German mass in the chapel as part of their yearly Miller family reunion.
