THE TRADEMARK OF CAPBORN CHAPEL "REDEEMERS IN DEATH REDUCTION"On February 5, 1860, the municipal assembly of Kappel grants one hundred francs from the community fund for the construction of a chapel on the Born at the Wetterkreuz. The total construction costs for the chapel were estimated at 1500 Fr. Thanks to many generous donations, the Bornkapelle could finally be realized. Construction is expected to have taken place in the year 1863.The plan for the chapel was designed by Baumeister Keller from Hitzkirch. For the construction work, as far as possible, the craftsmen of Kappel were considered. For the building blocks a small quarry was dug in "Chatzengraben". The farmers of Kappel provided the draft horses with wagons for their challenging work. Of course, the chapel could only be realized thanks to the manual work of many volunteers.
