Otto Bartning, a Berlin expert in sacral buildings, designed a chapel in 1908 which was then built in Korenov. The half-timbered structure was not a very common sight then in the southern parts of the Jizerske Mountains, unlike in, for instance, the foothills in the nearby Frydlant region. The chapel can be seen from afar, with its white exterior and harmonic proportions. The works began on 20 May 1909 and the chapel was consecrated on 10 October the same year.
