The Lutherhort Betsaal was almost torn down if it had not been for the efforts of history-loving Pastor Schwabe. It was built by German settlers in 1896 or 1898. Account of the re-building and relocation of the Lutherhort Betsaal that was built 112 years ago just east of the Calgary Trail in South Edmonton. For years its original function was forgotten, and it served as a chicken coop. It has now been restored and moved to the churchyard of St. Paul's Church in Edmonton Ellerslie, where it serves as a heritage museum. Pastor Schwabe played a key role in the restoration, and the Lede family (Ledcor Industries) financed a large part of the effort. The baby of one of their great-great-grandfathers was the first child to be baptized in the Betsaal.
