    The oldest (indirect) evidence of this little church is a note about a church visit by the diocese of Eichstätt in 1480. There a branch church is called "im Paum". According to W. Schwemmer, the name mentioned in 1520, "To the sacred tree", is supposed to indicate a pre-Christian place of worship. Other local historians suspect that the single-nave late Gothic building as a plague chapel was created (several plague waves in the 14th century). 1504 it says "To Paum, a capeln, is called to Sant leonhart".In 1508 the chapel - at that time a ruin - was mentioned in connection with a murder. In 1733 the chapel in the "Delicae Norimbergensis" is called again. According to records of Pastor Otnets, who worked in Pommelsbrunn from 1637 to 1659, there was a document (date unknown), after which was held on six different days before the destruction of the chapel; then probably only to Jacobi. Today, a service is held again on Whitsun Monday, at the Kirchweih and the Waldweihnacht (21st of December - Thomastag).

    It is worth taking a break at the chapel ruins and watching them.

    Suitable place for a little breather. Especially when the sun is shining hot, the chapel offers shady spots.
