Marker Text After German families began settling in this area in 1845, Catholic worship services were held in a private home and in a log chapel. In 1878 Johann Adam Kneupper and his wife, Margarethe, donated the land and aided residents of the Honey Creek community in erecting this one-room chapel. Built of stone quarried from nearby hills, the Kneupper Chapel was used for services of St. Joseph's Catholic Church until 1892.Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-1983
