The village of Kagar was first mentioned in 1536, but the less fertile stretch of land was not so attractive to German settlers. After the very small settlement was destroyed during the Thirty Years’ War, a group of Huguenot families came here from France as religious refugees in 1686. The 20 families formed the French Reformed Parish in Kagar. In the 18th century, there were three pastors in the village: French Reformed, German Reformed and Lutheran Protestant.

The wooden chandelier and Neo-Baroque organ front with folding doors are particularly eye-catching.
